Dr. Geoffrey Fong discusses the limited success of tobacco control policies in China and the Netherlands in a forthcoming issue of International Innovation. The article discusses the powerful influence of the tobacco industry which has led to weak policies in both countries.
Dr. Fong notes that "across the ITC countries, there is a strong relationship between the strength of the tobacco industry and the weakness of tobacco control. That's why the FCTC requirement that the tobacco industry must not be involved in tobacco control policies is so important."
