Framework Convention Alliance

The FCA’s vision is a world free from the devastating health, social, economic and environmental consequences of tobacco and tobacco use.

The FCA is a civil society alliance whose mission is to help strengthen the WHO FCTC and support its full and accelerated implementation worldwide. We work to integrate the FCTC into broader international health and development efforts, and seek novel strategies to free the world from tobacco-caused harms.

About Framework Convention Alliance

FCA was created in 1999 and formally established in 2003. It is made up of nearly 300 organisations from over 100 countries. FCA works on the development, ratification and implementation of the international treaty, the World Health Organization (WHO) Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (FCTC). The WHO FCTC is the world’s first modern-day global public health treaty. It requires Parties to adopt a comprehensive range of measures designed to reduce the devastating health and economic impacts of tobacco.

FCA is also a leading advocate for including the FCTC and global tobacco control in the international health and development framework, including the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) that were adopted by the UN General Assembly in 2015. FCA’s work is overseen by an elected Board of Directors. The executive director leads the staff, which is based in every WHO region.

The FCA’s work is made possible thanks to the following supporters and funders: Action on Smoking and Health USA, Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids, Canadian Cancer Society, Cancer Research UK, Cancer Council Victoria, Gates Foundation, Norwegian Cancer Society and Vital Strategies.
