The WHO FCTC Secretariat is also the Secretariat of the Protocol (Article 34 of the Protocol). The Protocol-related activities are carried out as mandated by the Conference of the Parties (decisions FCTC/COP5(16) and COP6(6).
The workshops bring together government officials from different sectors relevant for Protocol implementation, including health, customs, justice, finance and trade, with experts on Protocol matters, representatives of intergovernmental organizations, including the World Customs Organization, the World Bank and WHO, and members of civil society. They are organised in close collaboration with WHO Regional and Country Offices.
