Article 8 of the World Health Organization Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (FCTC) requires Parties to protect their citizens from exposure to tobacco smoke.

As part of its ongoing efforts to highlight the critical importance of smokefree legislation that is compliant with the FCTC, the Framework Convention Alliance (FCA) has produced this report detailing country level status on smoke-free legislation.
