Framework Convention Alliance: The Early Years
Description: See more at www.fctc.org/about-fca. Interviews with FCA members and others about the early years of this global tobacco control alliance, including the work that led to the adoption of the WHO Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (FCTC). The Framework Convention Alliance (FCA), also called the Framework Convention Alliance for Tobacco Control, is a confederation of nearly 500 organizations from more than 100 countries which banded together to support the negotiation, ratification and implementation of the World Health Organization (WHO) Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (FCTC). The FCA was formed in 1999 when negotiations began in Geneva. At first, the organization was a loose group of non-governmental organizations, universities and others who shared an interest in seeing a strong treaty free from interference from the tobacco industry. Today, the FCA is a nonprofit incorporated in Switzerland.
