FCTC Ratification: 15 November 2005
Entry into force: 13 February 2006


Every year more than 1,000 of its people are killed by tobacco-caused disease, while more than 22,000 children and more than 296,000 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 Togo'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
The 1.9 billion stick cigarette market is entirely dependent on imports and is dominated by three key multinationals: Philip Morris International (PMI), Imperial Tobacco and British American Tobacco (BAT). These companies together account for 87 percent of the market.



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