Conference Declaration

The International Conference on Public Health Priorities in the 21st Century: The Endgame for Tobacco was held in New Delhi, India from 10-12 September 2013. It was attended by 600 delegates from 52 countries The Conference built on the expanding global narrative of the tobacco endgame, which calls for reducing consumption and availability of tobacco in the society to minimal levels through full, effective and accelerated implementation of all policy measures recommended under WHO-FCTC and adopting new strategies.

The World Health Assembly (WHA), in May 2013, adopted a target of 30% relative reduction in tobacco use prevalence by 2025. Tobacco Control is also becoming integral to the agenda of sustainable development, adding urgency for attaining the WHA target and swiftly moving beyond that to eliminate tobacco use in all forms, by 2050, everywhere in the world.

The path towards achievement of a tobacco free world is delineated in the following declaration adopted by the Conference. Read More....
