Ghana became a Party to the WHO Framework Convention on Tobacco Control on February 27, 2005. The Tobacco Control Regulations do not provide clear provisions to curb the interference of the industry in policy development. The Regulations however gave some powers to the Minister of Health to develop a code of conduct prescribing standards for public officers. This code is yet to be developed. Further delay in developing guidelines to include clear provisions that state the total exclusion of the tobacco industry from policy development aimed at controlling tobacco industry activities in Ghana will leave not only doubts about our national commitment to this conventional requirement but also create an open door for the tobacco industry to take advantage of the situation and explore it. Perceptions about interference cannot be any less when one of the world giants in the tobacco industry, British American Tobacco (BAT), has publicly indicated their close work with governments under the swathe of a global convention partnership.
