FCA’s letter reminded President Marzouki of words he spoke during a visit to Geneva in 2001: “Tobacco use is one of the main preventable diseases and preventing it is certainly a matter of human rights, which includes the right to health for everyone.”
The Alliance also offered to support the new President and his Government in their tobacco-control activities.
FCA would like to thank Dr. Jean-Charles Rielle, former member of the Swiss parliament, first vice-president of the city council of Geneva and Director of CIPRET-Genève, for delivering the letter on its behalf.
