Description

Since publication of the first WHO report on the global tobacco epidemic in 2008, the steady progress made by countries on tobacco control has been demonstrated in biennial updates, of which this report is the latest. Despite the exceptional challenges brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, that progress continues. Latest results show that, as of 2020, more than 5.3 billion people – 69% of the world’s population – are covered by at least one MPOWER measure adopted at the highest level. Inspiringly, over 4.4 billion people are now covered by multiple, fully adopted MPOWER policies.
