FCTC Ratification: 27 January 2005
Entry into force: 27 April 2005


Every year more than 1300 of its people are killed by tobacco-caused disease, while more than 64,000 children and more than 604,000 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 Senegal'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.


Tobacco Industry
In Senegal, the market is led by Manufacture de Tabacs de l'Ouest Africain (MTOA) a part of the Imperial Tobacco Group (a subsidiary of British American Tobacco). Philip Morris International has a manufacturing presence in the country.



People have died from tobacco-related diseases in Africa since the opening of the first FCTC working group on 28 October 1999.
