MPOWER workshop in Dhaka
A workshop on implementation of MPOWER policies was held from 4-6 October in Dhaka, Bangladesh, organised by The Union. 25 participants attended from government departments, NGOs, media and academic institutions.
Members of the Department and The Union China Office attended the Asia Pacific Conference on Tobacco or Health in Beijing, 23–25 September. Graphic health warnings, plain packaging, smoke-free environments, and tobacco taxes were covered in sessions. 

This week The Union launched a Members Directory for active members. Through this new networking tool, members who "opt in" may share their contact details with other members around the world. Opting in is required to both provide and receive information.

This new resource is available in all three official Union languages – English, French and Spanish. It is designed to facilitate connections and collaboration among Union members with similar work interests and challenges. In particular, it will provide a new networking resource for students and researchers.

Union members may access the directory by logging in through Union Services at http://services.theunion.org.
