Tobacco Control Implementation and Enforcement


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.
