FCA Policy Briefing for COP7: Addressing gender-specific risks when developing tobacco control strategies
The Parties should, at COP7, ensure that:
- Sustainable implementation measures in relation to tobacco use and tobacco control in the lives of women and girls are developed;
- The reporting instrument includes gender indicators;
- Gender issues are included in the terms of reference of the Internal Review Mechanism;
- A toolkit is developed by a group of experts, in conjunction with the Convention Secretariat, to support tobacco control advocates in promoting FCTC interventions to policymakers, UN agencies and other development partners who work on maternal and child health and gender equality.
