Spotlight 9: Tobacco Control and Development

The ninth issue of the Spotlight on the FCTC covers the topic of tobacco and development, focusing specifically on FCTC Art. 22 and Art. 26.

The European Union is currently leading crucial talks regarding its external actions. In the context of the negotiation around the Multiannual Financial Framework (MFF) for the 2021-2027 period, discussions are ongoing on the new European Neighbourhood, Development and International Cooperation Instrument (NDICI), which should merge most of the existing instruments for external action (development, international cooperation, neighbourhood policies, etc.). As the EU considers future objectives and priorities, it is time to recognise the crucial role of tobacco control in shaping sustainable health systems and in NCD prevention in developing countries, along with the cross-cutting SDGs contribution.
