Recommendations

These are ways Mexico can deter interference from the tobacco industry:

Mexico improved its score this year with new measures in favor of transparency and against conflicts of interest, led by the Ministry of Health. However, tobacco industry interference remains in the Federal Congress, with lobbyists promoting lax regulation of electronic cigarettes and HTPs. There is a need to reinforce measures against conflicts of interest throughout government.
