Jointly developed toolkit: Article 5.3 of the WHO Framework Convention on Tobacco Control
The World Health Organisation Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (FCTC) is the world’s first global health treaty. It is designed to help countries work to eliminate the harm caused by tobacco. Article 5.3 is a key element of the treaty. It is intended to protect public health policy from the influence of the tobacco industry. It reads:
“In setting and implementing their public health policies with respect to tobacco control, Parties shall act to protect these policies from commercial and other vested interests of the tobacco industry in accordance with national law.”
In order to support Article 5.3, iPiP (TCCC) and ASH have created a toolkit for all those interested in protecting public policy from the influence of the tobacco industry. You can view and download these resources via the ASH website here or below.
