Challenge

The tobacco industry attends every treaty negotiation and attempts to dilute the best practices the global community is establishing, prolonging the tobacco epidemic which kills one person every 6 seconds.

Solution

The tobacco epidemic won't be solved overnight, but with strong global best practices, governments have the recipe to end the epidemic and protect the health of their citizens from the aggressive tobacco industry.

Long-Term Impact

Without action, one billion people will die from tobacco this century. Those deaths are all completely preventable if we take the right steps to control the epidemic today.
