OUR IMPACT: 9 countries have stepped up to provide sustainable funding for tobacco control
The Union works at the cutting edge of tobacco control. The Department is tackling the complex issues that have emerged in recent times, including:
- the tobacco industry’s use of trade law to sue countries for introducing tobacco control policies
- sustainable funding for tobacco control programmes
- NCDs and tobacco control
Union experts have presented new research at various conferences and academic institutions, including the World Conference on Lung Health and the World Conference on Tobacco or Health. The Department has also published in-depth discussion and position papers on these issues to spark productive debate and action within the public health community.
