Taxation du tabac en Afrique de l’ouest : note de politique du Ghana
Tobacco control is a global public health priority. Two of the five million annual tobacco-related deaths in the world occur in Africa and the World Health Organization predicts a peak of ten million deaths by 2030, 70% of which in developing countries if nothing is done. The Framework Convention for Tobacco Control (FCTC), which is the world response body to the phenomenon, includes a series of measures to reduce the demand for tobacco and its supply and protect the present and future generations from its adverse socio-sanitary, economic and environmental effects. It is grounded on exact information, strong political commitment, international cooperation, a multisectoral holistic approach, technical and financial assistance for the reconversion of tobacco farmers and the participation of the civil society.
