In a COVID-free world, many people in tobacco control would have been at the Hague from 9-14 November 2020 for the Ninth Conference of the Parties (COP9) of the WHO Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (FCTC), advocating for ever-stronger policies against the tobacco epidemic.

The COP was postponed to 2021, but the pandemic did not stop global civil society from (virtually) gathering in a series of webinars hosted by ASH to talk about the FCTC, where it is, and where it’s going.

In order to further the conversation, ASH and our co-panelists wrote a series of editorials based on those webinars. Our hope is that these webinars and articles provide momentum for a very successful COP 9 in 2021.
