WHO FCTC Article 2.1: The Overlooked Article’s Impact on Endgame
The Framework Convention on Tobacco Control was intended to be the floor for tobacco control, not the ceiling. Article 2.1 states, “In order to better protect human health, Parties are encouraged to implement measures beyond those required by this Convention and its protocols, and nothing in these instruments shall prevent a Party from imposing stricter requirements that are consistent with their provisions and are in accordance with international law.” Join our speakers as they discuss the intentions behind this article, and the possibilities for accelerating and exceeding the FCTC in order to achieve the objectives of the treaty “to protect present and future generations from the devastating health, social, environmental and economic consequences of tobacco consumption and exposure to tobacco smoke.”
