A recent review of WHO’s Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (FCTC) implementation database revealed numerous inconsistencies with national implementation reports. Since this database is integral to achieving compliance with FCTC, we must advocate for a stronger WHO that is capable of correctly reporting national FCTC implementation data and leading the global tobacco control movement.
