As is outlined in the Global Charter for the Public's Health, the WFPHA is committed to the Promotion of the public's health and the Protection of the human right to a healthy life. In March 2018, the Swiss Parliament in Berne is discussing a bill proposal that will defend the position of the tobacco industry at the expense of the public's health, giving bigger freedom to advertising of Tobacco Products, so further distancing Switzerland from the WHO Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (FCTC).

Thus, the WFPHA has joined a petition of signatories, initiated by the SSPH+, in opposition of this proposed Federal Act on Tobacco Products. We call on others to join in the refusal of this bill.
