Read the Declaration

The 17th World Conference on Tobacco or Health (WCTOH) closed on Friday, March 9, 2018 with the adoption of 11 Declarations, including the groundbreaking Cape Town Declaration on Human Rights and a Tobacco-free World.

This is a historic moment reaffirming that the tobacco industry infringes on human rights.

At WCTOH, we coordinated a social media photo booth (#TobaccoViolation) to help attendees show their support for the Cape Town Declaration and tobacco as a human rights issue. Here are some of the highlights.
