ITC Project


The purpose of the ITC Project in Uruguay is to monitor the reactions and support for legislation in a middle-income South American country that possesses strong tobacco control policies, including comprehensive smokefree laws and the largest graphic warning labels in the world. Uruguay signed the Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (FCTC) on June 19, 2003, and later ratified the treaty on September 9, 2004.
