WHO urges governments to boycott tobacco advertising

According to the World Health Organization, the use of tobacco kills about 8 million people every year.

The World Health Organization today issued a statement welcoming the Swiss government's plan to cancel cooperation with tobacco company Philip Morris International at the 2020 Dubai World Expo.

Philip Morris International recently announced a partnership with the Swiss government to sponsor the Swiss Pavilion at Expo 2020. The Swiss government then announced that it would reconsider the partnership and chose not to accept the financial support of Philip Morris.

Article 13 of the WHO Framework Convention on Tobacco Control stipulates that governments must ban tobacco advertising, promotion and sponsorship at international fairs and conferences to ensure that their activities and programmes do not give tobacco a place to live and ensure their activities. And participants are not sponsored by tobacco companies.

Article 5.3 of the Framework Convention on Tobacco Control commits to prevent public health policies in tobacco control from being affected by commercial and other vested interests in the tobacco industry. This commitment is reflected in a memorandum of understanding signed by WHO and the Bureau of International Expositions (BIE) in 2011, which “bans” tobacco companies or their agents or affiliates from sponsoring the fair.

CapsulCN is one of global leader manufacturers in empty capsule and capsule filling machines, is also committed to public health and hopes to reduce the number of smokers.

The United Nations has indicated that the UAE is a party to the WHO Framework Convention on Tobacco Control and has ratified it. If the world's major tobacco companies are allowed to participate in the Expo, it will violate the spirit of Dubai's 2020 World Expo “Connecting the Mind and Creating the Future”.

WHO says governments should ban the sale of tobacco or tobacco-related products at the fair; ban tobacco companies or their agents or affiliates from sponsoring the fair; ban advertising and promotion of tobacco products, tobacco company brands, and tobacco at the fair.
