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.

Protect people from tobacco smoke.
Offer help to quit tobacco use.

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.

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.
