The WHO Framework Convention on Tobacco Control
We have the means to curtail the tobacco epidemic
The most powerful tool at our disposal is a treaty, the WHO Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (WHO FCTC), which effectively protects people from the many harms of tobacco.
The WHO FCTC is the world's answer to the tobacco epidemic. It obliges its Parties to take incremental action against tobacco consumption, marketing and exposure, among many other measures.
The key is full implementation of the WHO FCTC.
