Much progress has been made for tobacco control and to address tobacco industry interference. However, these efforts can be strengthened further through:

  • Strengthening surveillance and compliance with legislation that can effectively prevent tobacco interference.
  • Formulating a policy or code of conduct for officials in their dealings, especially with the tobacco industry.
  • Raise awareness among political decision-makers regarding the need to establish a protocol against interference from the tobacco industry. That protocol should include the industry that markets e-cigarettes, and that contains severe sanctions.
