The Foundation for a Smoke-Free World has been formally launched in New York City. The foundation was founded and led by an architect of the World Health Organization (WHO)’s Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (FCTC). The foundation aims to build on policy and science across the world to fund research and support initiatives to reduce harm and deaths from smoking worldwide. The foundation secured initial funding from Philip Morris International (PMI). The foundation claims that it has robust systems to prevent conflict of interest and promote transparency.
The WHO said that it would not engage with the Foundation for a Smoke-Free World on the basis that its funding from PMI represented a fundamental conflict of interest. The WHO quoted the FCTC, saying that the guidelines for its implementation state clearly that governments should limit interactions with the tobacco industry and avoid partnerships. The WHO’s view is that strengthening the implementation of the FCTC is the most effective approach to tobacco control. Graphic warnings, banned advertising, promotion, and sponsorship, high taxation, and help to quit tobacco were all, according to the WHO, proven to reduce the demand for tobacco products, and PMI should support those efforts if they are truly committed to a smoke-free world.
