Many of the UK’s Overseas Territories (UKOTs) have made substantial progress in tobacco control, including implementation of measures consistent with key Articles under the WHO Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (FCTC). Since 2016, Public Health England has been working with tobacco control leads across a range of territories to help build capacity and to support this important area of health policy. This work is funded by the UK government under the Conflict, Stability and Security Fund (CSSF) in recognition of its commitment to “provid[ing] assistance to the territories as part of its objectives to improve global health and to ensure the UK’s international health obligations are met”. Several territories have expressed interest in applying to have the FCTC formally extended to them, in recognition and support of their work in tobacco control.
