In force since 2005, the WHO Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (FCTC) is a treaty that reaffirms people's right to live in a healthy and tobacco free environment by aiming to strengthen tobacco control. It has been one of the most widely and rapidly embraced treaties ever, with more than 170 Parties (or countries) signing up so far. This year, WHO has chosen the FCTC as the theme of World No Tobacco Day 2011. On this day and throughout the following year, WHO will draw attention to the treaty's importance, and highlight the responsibility of the signatory Parties to control the global epidemic of tobacco use.
