Solomon Islands became a Party to the WHO Framework Convention on Tobacco Control on February 27, 2005. Solomon Islands Political Party Integrity Bill of 2014, Section 57, made a provision for disclosure of campaign funds post-election, but it does not cover nor prohibit contributions from the tobacco industry or any entity working to further its interests to political parties, candidates or campaigns nor does it require full disclosure of such contributions from them during or prior to election. Nearly all government ministers and parliamentarians have had projects funded by the tobacco industry.
