The WHO FCTC secretariat has selected 15 of the treaty’s 180 Parties as recipients of direct support to governments for tobacco control, as part of the Sustainable Development Goals [SDGs] 2030 effort. The treaty is integral to the SDGs.

The Union co-manages the Bloomberg Initiative [BI] to Reduce Tobacco Use Grants Program in partnership with Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids. The programme awards funds to projects delivering high-impact tobacco control interventions, based on MPOWER, in low- and middle-income countries. Priority is given to countries with the highest prevalence of tobacco use.

Our priority countries are: China, Russia, Indonesia, India, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Brazil, Mexico, Philippines, Viet Nam and Turkey. In the first quarter of 2015 The Union was managing 69 active grant projects.

To date 776 grants worth US$ 141 million have been awarded.
