In just over a decade, the global community has made significant tobacco control progress, with some 4.7 billion people—63% of the world’s population—now covered by at least one comprehensive policy measure, a quadrupling since 2007 when only 1 billion people (15% of the world’s population) were covered.1 Despite this success, there is much to be done, particularly in the areas of policy implementation and enforcement. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), more than one-fifth of the Parties to the Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (FCTC) consider better enforcement of FCTC measures absolutely imperative.2 Achieving this ambitious goal is dependent on several related factors: precise regulations, effective communication and engagement, coordinated monitoring and enforcement actions, and awareness of—and ability to counter— disruptive tobacco industry interference.

Novel and emerging tobacco and nicotine products—the World Health Organization labels them “undoubtedly harmful”1—will wreak significant havoc in low- and middle- income countries. Together, the particular circumstances in these countries create a perfect storm that will likely result in significant addiction, particularly among vulnerable youth. In an abundance of caution, The Union recommends comprehensive bans on these products—this includes prohibiting their sale, manufacture, importation, and exportation—as well as ensuring they are subject to TAPS (Tobacco Advertising, Promotion and Sponsorship) bans and SF (smoke-free) legislation.
