WHO postpones key tobacco control meetings until 2021

The World Health Organisation (WHO) has opted to postpone meetings on its Illicit Trade Protocol and tobacco control until November 2021 because of the COVID-19 crisis.

The next sessions of the Conference of Parties to the WHO’s Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (COP9) and the Meeting of the Parties to the Protocol to Eliminate Illicit Trade in Tobacco Products (MOP2) had been due to take place in November 2020.

The postponed meetings will keep the same location – The Hague in the Netherlands – and will “tackle the international tobacco illicit market and promote greater collaboration with government agencies, regional and international bodies in charge of law enforcement and customs.”
