Tanzania has been a Party to the WHO Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (WHO FCTC) since July 29, 2007. The implementation of the treaty, however, is weak and obligations under the treaty are not reflected in the current tobacco control legislation. Tobacco use is increasing rather than decreasing in Tanzania. While Article 5.3 is available to the government to protect tobacco control measures from tobacco industry interference, it has is not been effectively utilized.
