Strategic action plan for tobacco-free initiatives in the South-East Asia Region 2010-2015
AbstractDescription: The Strategic Action Plan for 2010-2015 contains the vision, strategic objectives and actions for tobacco control in the South-East Asia Region for five years. It sets a framework for comprehensive tobacco control in the Region based on the provisions of WHO FCTC. It stipulates broad indicators that will be used to monitor the progress of tobacco control activities and also emphasizes the importance of setting nationally relevant targets and indicators as successful implementation of WHO FCTC depends almost entirely on the ability of the Member countries. It highlights the need to develop and enforce effective tobacco control policies and measures and to scale up the synergies and intersectoral collaboration and partnership. It includes an estimation of resource requirement and suggests an approach for sustainable funding for tobacco control.
