Although Argentina has made great progress regarding tobacco control and transparency policies, the following recommendations remain necessary to be enacted:

  • Develop a code of conduct aimed at restricting interactions of public officials from all branches with the tobacco industry.
  • Modify the National Tobacco Control Law in order to completely ban tobacco product advertising, promotion and sponsorship. These new restrictions should provide a system of monitoring and effective compliance against the tobacco industry’s CSR activities.
  • Develop a registry of companies and associations linked to the tobacco industry. This registry should include information about lobbyists, both at the national and subnational levels.
  • Ratify the WHO FCTC.
