Global Health Lecture Series
Nov. 10, 2011
USC Institute for Global Health
Patricia Lambert of the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids discussed the Framework Convention on Tobacco Control for her talk at USC. The Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (2003) is the world’s first and so far the only public health treaty in the WHO’s 60-plus-year history. It is considered by the international community as a “best buy” in the struggle against the rapid rise of noncommunicable diseases in low- and middle-income countries, and is currently in force in almost all of them. The treaty is galvanizing governments and civil society organizations to face the disease and death driven by a powerful multinational industry.
This lecture was co-hosted by the USC School of International Relations.
