FCTC not truly globally representative

| June 12, 2013

Developing countries face particular barriers to participating in the activities of the Conference of the Parties to the World Health Organization’s Framework Convention on Tobacco Control, according to the conclusions of a study recently posted on the Tobacco Control website.

And the engagement of developing countries in global tobacco control is likely to diminish in the absence of specific measures to support their effective participation, the study found.

The study, by researches at the University of Edinburgh, UK, was first published online on November 14.

It is available as an open access paper at http://tobaccocontrol.bmj.com/content/early/2013/06/09/tobaccocontrol-2012-050849.full.
