WHO | MPOWER: Six Policies To Reverse The Tobacco Epidemic

World Health Organization

The tobacco epidemic is preventable. Hundreds of millions of people do not have to die this century from tobacco-related illness – but only if the leaders of governments and civil society take urgent action now.

WHO has introduced the MPOWER package of six proven policies:

  • Monitor tobacco use and prevention policies,
  • Protect people from tobacco smoke,
  • Offer help to quit tobacco use,
  • Warn about the dangers of tobacco,
  • Enforce bans on tobacco advertising, promotion and sponsorship, and
  • Raise taxes on tobacco.

The MPOWER policy package can reverse the tobacco epidemic and prevent millions of tobacco-related deaths.
