Madagascar

 

 

FCTC Ratification: 22 September 2004
Entry into force: 27 February 2005

Every year more than 7600 of its people are killed by tobacco-caused disease, while more than 297000 children and more than 1844000 adults continue to use tobacco each day. Complacency in the face of the tobacco epidemic will ensure the tobacco industry continues to run roughshod over the lives of Madagascar's citizens and ensure that tobacco's death toll will grow with each passing year. Tobacco control advocates must reach out to other communities to strengthen their efforts in this mortal fight.
