Uruguay ratified the WHO Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (FCTC) on September 9, 2004. In 2006, researchers from Universid ad de Rep├║blica and Centro de Investigaci├│n para la Epidemia del Tabaquismo (CIET) in collaboration with the ITC Project established the ITC Uruguay (UY) Survey. Five survey waves have been conducted among a cohort of adult smokers aged 18 and older in Montevideo in the first wave and four other cities (Salto, Maldonado, Durazno, and Rivera) were added in subsequent waves.
