Tobacco Insights: April 2018


"Tobacco Insights: April 2018", provides news and analysis related to events in the Tobacco sector throughout the month of March. Highlights include new product launches, mergers and acquisitions, the latest news on the global debate on e-cigarettes and regional and national tobacco news from the month of March from around the globe.

The World Conference on Tobacco or Health (WCTH) held its 17th conference in South Africa on March 7-9, 2018 and has called upon governments to develop plans by 2021 for phasing out the sale of tobacco products. Furthermore, it is urging governments, scientists, research entities, foundations, and civil-society organizations to reject or cease engagement with the Philip Morris International-funded Foundation for a Smoke-free World and other similar initiatives of the tobacco industry. The WCTH claims the global economic cost of smoking amounted to nearly USD 2 trillion and 2% of the world's GDP in 2016.


- Bloomberg Philanthropies will provide USD 20 million to fund the launch of Stopping Tobacco Organizations and Products (STOP), where a new global watchdog will, according to Bloomberg, aggressively monitor what it describes as deceptive tobacco industry tactics and practices to undermine public health.

- STOP will deliver regular reports detailing tactics and strategies, and will provide tools and training materials for countries to combat the tobacco industry's influence.

- Findings will be publicly available and aligned with Article 5.3 of the World Health Organization's Framework Convention on Tobacco Control. Bloomberg Philanthropies are also pushing for the extended use of alternative products, such as heat-not-burn and e-cigarettes, as cessation devices, although they state that the evidence continues to remain inconclusive.
