Spotlights on the FCTC

  • What does the WHO Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (FCTC) mean for the EU? If you want to find out, read the first issue of a series of briefings “Spotlight on the FCTC”.

  • This second issue of "Spotlight on the FCTC" highlights how the European Commission, European Parliament and EU Member States have met, or in some cases failed to meet, their obligations to tackle second-hand smoke, according to Article 8 of the convention.

  • The third issue of the Spotlight on the FCTC focused on the role of article 5.3 of the WHO Framework Convention on Tobacco Control in protecting public policy from tobacco industry influence.

  • The fourth issue of the Spotlight on the FCTC focuses on the European Commission proposals to amend EU Directives on the rates and structure of taxes on manufactured cigarettes.

  • The fifth issue of the Spotlight on the FCTC focuses on tobacco and development policy as well as Articles 22 and 26, which cover technical assistance and financial resources respectively.

  • The sixth issue of the Spotlight on the FCTC focuses on Article 15 and the proposed Protocol, which will aim to legally commit the Parties to take action against the global illicit trade of tobacco products.

  • The seventh issue of the Spotlight on the FCTC focuses on Article 14 of the WHO Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (FCTC), which covers tobacco dependence and cessation.

  • The eighth issue of the Spotlight on the FCTC focuses on Articles 11 and 13 of the WHO Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (FCTC), which covers the labelling and packaging of tobacco products.

The SFP operates with minimal administrative costs allowing most of its received funds to go directly to supporting information and advocacy work, publications and workshops.

To ensure that the SFP continues to be independent and flexible, it receives a vast majority of its income from the SFP Partners: Cancer Research UK, the European Heart Network (EHN), the Dutch Cancer Society (DSC) and the Action on Smoking and Health (UK) (ASH (UK)). SFP also receives funding from the European Commission, Bloomberg Philanthropies and the Norwegian Cancer Society.

We are 100% transparent regarding our financial income; yearly income sources can be found in the final section of each of SFP's annual reports. Please consult the Annual Reports section for more information.
