Tobacco industry exploits the COVID-19 tragedy to advance its agenda

  • According to the World Health Organization, tobacco kills up to half of its users. Tobacco products are not essential products with or without COVID-19
  • Engagement of the tobacco industry in Corporate Social Responsibility is a tactic to interfere with hard won gains of tobacco control. Article 5.3 of the WHO FCTC and its implementation guidelines request Parties to protect public health from the vested interests of the tobacco industry
  • Tobacco Industry’s offering to help in vaccine production is a tactic to make tobacco companies appear as “part of the solution”
  • Alternative tobacco products are not safe either, and the Tobacco industry is confusing scientific research and sharing misleading information for these products
