Act NOW
Starting right now, regardless of our political affiliation, we can apply that hopeful phrase that President Barack Obama used in his 2008 presidential campaign and say:

Yes We Can keep our underage children and teens safe by preventing the sale of tobacco products to them.

Yes We Can help to decrease the spread of deadly tobacco products around the world.

Yes We Can help smokers who want to quit do so by ensuring access to effective cessation methods, and by compassionately supporting their efforts.

Yes We Can prevent people from being exposed to the harmful effects of second hand tobacco smoke.

Let's create a brighter future for humanity. Let's work as a conscious and caring Community to end the tobacco problem.

Monitor tobacco use and prevention policies.
Protect people from tobacco smoke.
Offer help to quit tobacco use.
Warn about the dangers of tobacco.
Enforce bans on tobacco advertising, promotion, and sponsorship.
Raise taxes on tobacco.

It is thought that effective implementation of these guidelines can save hundreds of millions of lives in this century.

The WHO Framework Convention on Tobacco Control is the first treaty negotiated under the auspices of the World Health Organization. Adopted by the World Health Assembly on May 21, 2003 and entered into force on February 27, 2005, it has since become one of the most widely embraced treaties in UN history. To date, 164 Countries have ratified it. The U.S. signed it on May 10, 2004, but President Bush never sent it to Congress to ratify it.

The WHO FCTC was developed to respond to the globalization of the tobacco epidemic. It's an evidence-based treaty that reaffirms the right of all people to the highest standard of health. The Convention rep
