Overcoming Tobacco Industry Interference to Achieve Sustainable Development Goals

September 21, 2020

Including the WHO Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (FCTC) in COVID-19 recovery responses will not only foster healthier people and economies, but also bring countries’ plans into alignment with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). But as STOP lays out in this webinar on the UN SDGs, the tobacco industry is standing in the way.

Despite its best efforts to portray itself as a contributor to the SDGs, the tobacco industry is only a barrier to achieving these goals.

Watch the webinar to hear from high level experts from the United Nations Development Programme, the World Health Organization and more on how the industry’s interests are incompatible with the SDGs and how the FCTC can help achieve these global targets.
