Bangladesh slips in tobacco-control rating
« on: November 20, 2012, 12:32:50 PM »
A global report on Tuesday lowered Bangladesh's position in tobacco control as it is yet to introduce picture health warnings on tobacco packs even though more countries worldwide adopted the 'highly cost-effective' tool to deter smoking.
The report of the Canadian Cancer Society, which ranks 198 countries and territories on the size of their health warnings on cigarette packages, was released at the ongoing Conference of the Parties to the WHO Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (FCTC) in Seoul.
