FCTC Ratification: 30 June 2006
Entry into force: 1 February 2006


Every year more than 8700 of its people are killed by tobacco-caused disease, while more than 142000 children and more than 3224000 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 Algeria'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.

Overall tobacco market continues to see healthy growth thanks to a growing smoking population
All tobacco categories, with the exception of cigars, continue to see positive growth following a rise in the smoking
population.Due to a lack of enforcement of smoking bans and fines not being handed out to those caught smoking where they 
should not be, the industry faced few threats and consumers continued to smoke in public places.



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