Observatório de Regulação Internacional de Fatores de Risco Associados às Doenças Crônicas Não Transmissíveis


The Framework Convention for Tobacco Control (FCTC), in force since 2005, was intensely discussed and approved between 1999 and 2003. Unlike the other resolutions presented here, with a recommendatory bias, this has a binding character, that is, mandatory application in the signatory countries.

Among the 10 resolutions published in the period 2005-2016, there is 1 from WHO, 7 concerning meetings of the Conference of the Parties of the WHO Framework Convention for Tobacco Control and 2 from ECOSOC:

All these documents

- Strengthen international concern with negative impacts on public health, as regards social, economic and environmental consequences;
-Recognize the validity of conflicts of interest between the tobacco industry and public health and recommend actions to be taken in an integrated way between UN agencies – UN Task Force.
