WCTOH 2015 Symposium

The human rights based approach (HRBA) to tobacco control provides research, policy and advocacy tools to hold accountable the tobacco industry to the harm it unleashes in several domains. The FCTC was developed from previous human rights treaties -it can be applied more broadly as a HRBA.HRBA intersects with the right to a healthy environment (secondhand smoke; exposure to pesticides or green tobacco sickness); the right to a sustainable income (crops prices; indentured servitude); and the right to information (education). The symposium describes HRBA to analyze abuses and suggest remedies.
