INDUSTRY WATCH- PACKS ABUSE
This page is meant to show how the tobacco industry uses cigarette packs in Africa to advertise its products. Effective implementation of Article 11 of the WHO FCTC will shift the role of the tobacco pack from being an advertising tool for the tobacco industry to one that promotes public health. There is an urgent need for African countries to introduce pictorial health warnings on packages whose effectiveness have been proved by several studies.

PURPOSE OF TOBACCO INDUSTRY YOUTH SMOKING PREVENTION PROGRAMMES


It is not to reduce youth smoking but rather to serve the industry’s political needs by

• preventing effective tobacco control legislation,
• marginalizing public health advocates,
• preserving the industry’s access to youths,
• creating allies within policymaking and regulatory bodies,
• defusing opposition from parents and educators,
• bolstering industry credibility, and
• preserving the industry’s influence with policymakers.
