Conflict of Interest Disclaimer

The tobacco industry’s interests are fundamentally and irreconcilably in conflict with public health and, thus, with the work of STOP. This conflict of interest is not only encoded in our partner organizations, but it is enshrined in Article 5.3 of the WHO’s Framework Convention on Tobacco Control.

As such, STOP upholds a firm non-engagement policy with the tobacco industry and its allies. We reserve the right to remove subscribers due to their involvement with the tobacco industry, or if their interests align with the tobacco industry.
