Webinar WHO FCTC Implementation on Article 5.2(a) – National Coordinating Mechanisms
The content of this webinar was organized around the suggestions of the WHO FCTC Secretariat/UNDP Report - Tobacco control governance in Sub-Saharan Africa: Implementing Article 5.2(a) of the World Health Organization Framework Convention on Tobacco Control -. The Report explores lessons, experiences and good practices and presents it around six key areas for governments to consider with respect to focal points and in the design of their National Coordinating Mechanisms (NCMs): (1) leadership; (2) composition, including size and membership; (3) lines of authority and statutory power; (4) funding; (5) international linkages; and (6) fitting within the broader NCD agenda.
Brazil, Iran and Republic of Moldova presented their experience in developing successful NCMs by exploring the six domains highlighted by the WHO FCTC Secretariat/UNDP Report.
