2008 Annual Report
In 2008 10 new countries became Parties to the FCTC and 35 countries adopted 100% smokefree laws in all public places. Governments also made positive decisions through the FCTC that will help reduce tobacco consumption around the world. We also provided leadership, technical expertise and logistical support during key FCTC negotiations and WHO meetings, as well as regional working group and expert group meetings.
FCA contributed strategic planning, policy brief writing, campaign development, and media campaigns. Prior to and during each meeting, we developed policy position papers, educational materials, and presentations that were made available to government delegates as well as NGO representatives.
