208 Organizations Call on UN Committee to Recommend Stronger Tobacco Control Policies


ENSP is honored to join Action on Smoking and Health and a total of 208 signatories from 61 countries in calling on the UN Committee on the Elimination of all forms of Racial Discrimination (CERD) to maintain and strengthen its mention of the harms of tobacco in the Draft General Recommendation n°37 on Racial Discrimination in the enjoyment of the right to health.

The existing Draft recommendation is already an historic first for the tobacco control community, serving as a firm acknowledgment of the fact that the tobacco epidemic worsens public health disparities.
