Celebrating The Leadership Of The African Woman In Tobacco Control

 July 30, 2021 | 13: 00 GMT

Women have historically played leading roles in the tobacco control movement in Africa. They have contributed immensely to the advancement of the WHO Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (FCTC) across the continent, heading governmental agencies, or engaging bravely in campaigns to isolate tobacco industry interference as civil society leaders.

While their efforts and achievements are enormous, women have hardly ever been celebrated for their very valuable input to tobacco control in Africa.

This virtual roundtable is organised as part of activities to commemorate African Women’s Day (31 July), with the objective to celebrate the leadership of the African woman in tobacco control.
