Delegates Discuss Advances in Implementation of WHO Framework Convention on Tobacco Control

The delegates shared their experiences during this afternoon’s discussion of the progress report on the advances in the implementation of the WHO Framework Convention on Tobacco Control.

Dr. Luiz Augusto Galvao, Area Manager, Sustainable Development and Environmental Health, emphasized the need for passing laws so that the Framework Convention can be effective. He offered the Pan American Health Organization’s support. He also indicated that despite the fact that the topic of tobacco is used as an example of health policies, this “does not mean that the issue is closed” and reminded all that “the attacks of the tobacco industry” have to be faced.
