The tobacco industry and eletronic nicotine delivery systems (ENDs)


By ratifying the World Health Organization's Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (FCTC/WHO) in 2005, Brazil committed to establishing mechanisms to comply with the treaty's measures, including article 5.3 which states that “the Parties shall act to protect these policies from the commercial interests and other interests of the tobacco industry, in accordance with national legislation”. To support compliance with this measure, Guidelines were defined for the implementation of article 5.3, whose first guiding principle states that “there is a fundamental and irreconcilable conflict between the interests of the tobacco industry and the interests of public health”. By March 2021, 182 countries Parties  had ratified the treaty, which covers more than 90% of the world's population.
