Tobacco Free Initiative (TFI)

Technical assistance to support the WHO FCTC process

Since the adoption of the WHO Framework Convention on Tobacco Control, the interim secretariat of the WHO FCTC has been concentrating its efforts on ensuring that as many countries as possible sign and ratify the Treaty. Awareness-raising among politicians, policy-makers, health professionals and society at large is essential to this process. TFI is also providing technical support to countries to assist them in their efforts to strengthen their infrastructure and take the necessary steps towards the signature, ratification and implementation of the WHO FCTC.
