What is the SFP Coalition?

The SFP Coalition is a network comprising of independent EU and national advocacy organisations with technical expertise in tobacco control policy. Led by SFP, Coalition partners work together to promote and support smoking prevention through the development of advocacy towards EU tobacco control policies through the development and implementation of the FCTC, its protocols and guidelines.

The main priority of the SFP Coalition is to promote forward-looking and evidence-based tobacco control legislation in order to implement the FCTC in specific and cross-cutting policy areas, with an overarching goal of improving health and reducing health inequalities among EU citizens.

The SFP Coalition currently has 57 partners across Europe including SFP Main partners, Associate partners and Advocacy partners. The Coalition communicates regularly and meets annually to discuss and agree advocacy priorities at EU and national level on specific areas.

SFP Coalition partners recognise the fundamental importance of strengthening cooperation on tobacco control policy in the EU through better communication of our actions and capacity-building regarding specific areas of the FCTC at European and national level.

How does the SFP Coalition work?

  • SFP provides technical assistance to SFP Coalition partners regarding policy developments and programme initiatives related to tobacco control, allowing them to contribute to the policy-making process at EU level.

  • SFP facilitates the exchange of information between the partners of the SFP Coalition regarding EU and national advocacy on smoking prevention and tobacco control to enable the Coalition to act cohesively.

  • SFP trains, mentors and supports the partners of the SFP Coalition so that they can engage with the EU in a consistent and coordinated manner.

  • SFP promotes tobacco control information and policy research at EU and national level, in collaboration with other EU health organisations and tobacco control organisations.

  • Coalition partners keep SFP informed of major policy and strategic developments on tobacco control in their country.

  • Coalition partners may ask the SFP Coalition to support specific national priorities either through letters, consultation submissions, or through public activities such as reports or press releases.

The SFP Coalition is non-profit making, transparent, and financially independent of industry, commercial, business, or other conflicting interests. It is not a legal entity.
