Tobacco Free Initiative (TFI)

Policy monitoring

The WHO Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (WHO FCTC) is the pre-eminent global tobacco control instrument. It contains legally binding obligations for its parties, setting the foundation for reducing both demand for and supply of tobacco products and providing a comprehensive direction for tobacco control policy at all levels.

WHO's Tobacco Free Initiative assists Member States to track the status of selected demand-reduction measures of the WHO FCTC. The results are reported in the periodic WHO Report on the Global Tobacco Epidemic.
