Reflecting the Past-Shaping the Future: An Assessment of WHO Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (FCTC) Implementation in India:


The key objective of this study is to evaluate the status of implementation of tobacco control measures covered under WHO’s Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (FCTC) rules in India (2004-2020). The study provides research-based recommendations for better policy formation to combat the increasing use of tobacco amongst the masses, which is turning into a major health risk. The study has critically reviewed secondary literature which provides information about use of tobacco and the control measures, and the enforcement undertaken with regard to key articles from 6-22 of FCTC in India. 

The work highlights the changes needed in FCTC and its implementation in India based on the study findings. Finally, the project will disseminate the findings of this study and recommendations for positive change amongst various stakeholders including WHO to advocate effective implementation of FCTC in India to make it more impactful. The key outcome of this study is to produce a policy document with policy suggestions needed in FCTC and its implementation in India based on the assessment findings. The aim is to disseminate the findings of this study through various means including print and/or electronics media; and produce relevant research papers to merit publication in reputed journals. Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), Bhubaneswar, Odisha, Institute of Rural Management Anand (IRMA), Gujarat, Institute of Health Management Research (IHMR), Karnataka are collaborating in this study.
