Tobacco Industry Interference (TII) Policy paper

The development of the health of the people of a country is closely related with the existing laws and the policies of that country. Some of the selfish groups are trying to influence all the principles to fulfill their own interests. Tobacco companies have been making the most active role in various self-communist groups. Like many other countries of the world, it’s also a big challenge to face Tobacco Industry Interference in formulating tobacco control law in Bangladesh. Currently, this challenge is also visible. Even after having the potentiality to play a leading role in tobacco control, in many cases we are falling behind. To provide more emphasize on tobacco control and take proper initiative in controlling tobacco companies is badly needed to develop the health of the people. In addition to enacting laws on tobacco control, raising taxes and imposing surcharges, it is important to update the provisions of other laws in the state that may hinder tobacco control as needed. The law, policy and commandment which is creating obstacle in tobacco control activities has been discussed in this policy paper. Download English FormatDownload Bangla format
