Angola

Angola ratified the Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (FCTC) on 20 September 2007

Every year more than 3300 of its people are killed by tobacco-caused disease, while more than 24000 children and more than 1017000 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 Angola'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.
