UN task force on tobacco control holds special session

15 Mar 2012

The meeting highlighted areas where the need for an interagency response has been clearly established, such as taxation of tobacco products and smoke-free public places. It also noted where the need for collaboration is rapidly emerging, such as illicit trade of tobacco products, alternatives to tobacco growing and trade-related aspects of tobacco control.

Particular emphasis was placed on overarching aspects of the interagency response such as supporting national coordinating mechanism and integrating implementation of the WHO FCTC into the United Nations Development Assistance Framework (UNDAF) at the country level.
