Overview

This book is the first in a series of WHO manuals to support the implementation of the historic WHO Framework Convention on Tobacco Control. Recognizing that legislation is indispensable to long-term success, this hands-on publication offers health officials and others the tools to develop the legislative measures required by the WHO Framework Convention on Tobacco Control.

Beginning with an explanation of the legal terms and concepts, this handbook guides the reader through each stage of the legislative process, from the first steps of building a foundation of political support, to the enforcement and evaluation of legislation after it comes into force. It describes the strategic choices each country must make in approaching legislation, and offers practical suggestions for developing legislative text, working with lawmakers to win the proposal's adoption, and overcoming objections and obstacles.
