The WFPHA officially supports the World Heart Foundation (WHF)’s statement delivered at the WHO Executive Board, in response to the Foundation for a Smoke-free World’s open letter.

In this statement, the WHF reminds the WHO of it’s commitment to protect their policy-making process from tobacco industry interference, and the Sustainable Development Goal they initiated which strengthens the implementation of the WHO Framework Convention on Tobacco Control in all countries.

Moreover, the World Heart Foundation recommends that no government or organization should accept money from, endorse, or enter into partnerships with the Philip Morris International (PMI) funded “Foundation for a Smoke-Free World”. Read the full statement here.

AMRAMR

The WFPHA has released a joint paper in collaboration with the European Public Health Alliance: “The Global Charter for the Public’s Health: how can we use it to tackle AMR?” 
AMR is a multisectoral problem, which must be dealt with on a regional, national, and supranational level. To systematically tackle AMR, there is a need for a framework that takes these preconditions into account. The Global Charter for the Public’s Health is one promising useful framework developed by the WFPHA.
This report represents one of the outcomes of our last year workshop on this topic. The Global Charter’s implementation is maintaining it’s progress!
