Tobacco Industry Strategies to Undermine Tobacco Control Activities at the World Health Organization

Released on August 2 by the World Health Organization (WHO), this 248-page report charges that leading tobacco companies undertook a long-running, sophisticated, and comprehensive effort to undermine the WHO's anti-smoking efforts worldwide. Based on industry documents that date back a decade, the report contends that tobacco companies attempted to use front organizations and groups to block the WHO, and even placed individuals with industry ties within WHO-affiliated groups. For the most part, the tobacco companies have not disputed the contents of the report, but claim that they no longer use such tactics.
