Our policy on international tobacco legislation
Tobacco is the leading preventable cause of cancer worldwide. As the world’s largest independent organisation dedicated to cancer research, we see tobacco control as a key aspect of our work to prevent cancer.
Cancer Research UK strongly supports the Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (FCTC) – the first treaty negotiated under the auspices of the World Health Organization. We believe that effective implementation of the FCTC by ratifying nations will decisively change the international landscape of tobacco control and will stem the tobacco epidemic, protecting future generations worldwide.
We work with partners in the UK, Europe and worldwide to support the implementation of effective and comprehensive tobacco control measures.
