Abstract

Global cities like New York and London were among the first to pioneer effective tobacco control policies — like smoke-free workplaces, public cessation services and higher tobacco taxes.

These life-saving policies were so successful that an international treaty called the Framework Convention on Tobacco Control was negotiated in 2003 to promote similar evidence-based policies throughout the world. Until recently, many assumed the 181 countries that ratified the treaty had benefitted from it.
