Finally, UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon linked plain packaging to implementation of the World Health Organization (WHO) Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (FCTC). Accelerating implementation of the FCTC is included in Sustainable Development Goal 3, the ‘health’ goal.

Plain packaging is recommended in Articles 11 and 13 of the WHO FCTC. 

“I call on Governments around the world to get ready for plain packaging,” said Ban in a message for WNTD.
