Mauritius ratified the Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (FCTC) in May 2004. Since 1999, Mauritius has had tobacco legislation in place that was progressive for its time, but these laws were not comprehensive. Although a small country, Mauritius has the capacity to conduct high-quality research, and the team has demonstrated and expressed their commitment to improving their capacity and standards through working with international experts. In 2009, Mauritius became the first African country to implement large pictorial warning labels, with health warnings on 60% of the front and 75% of the back of cigarette packs.
