Colombia El Decreto Ley 4107 de 2011 crea el Ministerio de Salud y Protección Social. Dentro de la estructura organizacional, se creó la Subdirección de Enfermedades No Transmisibles, la cual se organiza a través de 3 grupos: 1) Estilos, modos y condiciones de vida saludable; 2) Gestión integrada de la salud bucal, cardiovascular, bucal, del cáncer y otras condiciones crónicas; y 3) Gestión integrada para la salud mental. Transversal a los dos primeros grupos existe un equipo de control de tabaco que sirve como centro de coordinación para el tema. La unidad está conformada por profesionales de diferentes disciplinas, lo que ha enriquecido el enfoque multidisciplinar de las acciones que se han planteado en el control del tabaco a corto, mediano y largo plazo. A nivel intersectorial, está la Comisión Intersectorial de Salud Pública (Decreto 859 de 2014), que es la instancia de coordinación y seguimiento entre los diferentes sectores responsables en el desarrollo del Plan Decenal de Salud Pública, en el que se han incluido metas y estrategias específicas para control de tabaco. De manera más específica, desde la adopción del Convenio Marco para el Control de Tabaco en 2008, los escenarios intersectoriales han sido suscitados por la necesidad de construir una posición de país que oriente a la delegación nacional en su participación en las Conferencias de las Partes del CMCT, y demás espacios de participación internacional referentes al control de tabaco. No obstante, en años recientes, se ha promovido que la acción intersectorial trascienda hacia un escenario de interacción más activo. En efecto, el Estado colombiano ha procurado, mediante las herramientas de cooperación internacional, fortalecer la acción intersectorial en control de tabaco. En un primer momento, a finales de 2012, se solicitó a la Secretaría del CMCT el apoyo en la realización de una misión de evaluación de necesidades, que permitiera identificar los avances y las brechas en la implementación del tratado. En este ejercicio, la misión facilitó, no sólo conocer el estado de avance de las acciones sectoriales a favor del control de tabaco, sino también, generar espacios de encuentro bilateral para reconocer las necesidades y preocupaciones frente a la implementación intersectorial del tratado. Con la socialización de este informe en una mesa intersectorial en 2013, se concluyó que era prioritaria la definición conjunta de una hoja de ruta para la aplicación efectiva y plena del Convenio, que involucrara a todos los sectores competentes. No obstante, el dinamismo de la interlocución intersectorial se concentró en la elaboración de los Informes bienales de implementación, y en la construcción de la posición nacional para la participación de la delegación en las COP. Para 2016, la Defensoría del Pueblo, organismo que vigila la garantía y protección de los derechos humanos en Colombia, elaboró el informe "Informe de seguimiento al cumplimiento del Convenio Marco de la OMS para el Control del Tabaco en Colombia" con los insumos entregados principalmente por el Ministerio de Salud pero que también incluyó otros actores del gobierno y sociedad civil. En este documento también se reitera la importancia del trabajo intersectorial para un cumplimiento integral del tratado. Ver Anexo 11 y el siguiente enlace: https://www.defensoria.gov.co/public/pdf/Informe_tabaco.pdf Reconociendo la urgencia de un mecanismo de coordinación intersectorial en control de tabaco, mucho más allá de construir el informe bienal y de definir la posición de país, la Subdirección de ENT del Ministerio de Salud y Protección Social, propuso el desarrollo de cuatro espacios de seguimiento intersectorial (que se llevaron a cabo entre 2017 y 2018), priorizando los temas más relevantes y urgentes en cuanto a la implementación del CMCT: Para la primera sesión, se propuso el desarrollo de una agenda de seguimiento de conformidad con los procedimientos de inspección, vigilancia y control referentes a: a) la protección de los ambientes 100% libres de humo de tabaco; b) prohibición de venta al menudeo y a venta a menores de edad; c) prohibición total de publicidad, promoción y patrocinio; d) comercio ilícito de productos de tabaco. Para la segunda sesión, se propuso abordar el proceso de ratificación del Protocolo para la eliminación del comercio ilícito de productos de tabaco. Para la tercera sesión, se sugirió la presentación de los avances en cuanto al Programa Nacional de Cesación del consumo de tabaco. Para la última sesión, se planteó la presentación de los avances de cada uno de los actores competentes en el cumplimiento del Convenio Marco, y de la propuesta de formalización del mecanismo de coordinación intersectorial para el CMCT. Durante el desarrollo de estos encuentros, se gestionó el apoyo de los demás sectores en la postulación de Colombia a la plataforma de cooperación internacional FCTC 2030. En la planeación de este Proyecto, se priorizó como una de sus líneas estratégicas, el fortalecimiento de la acción intersectorial en control de tabaco. Esto, en el reconocimiento de la necesidad de contar con un espacio de encuentro y coordinación que funcione de manera regular y que facilite el desarrollo de acciones estratégicas, estructurales y coordinadas. También, porque para los actores sectoriales es importante abordar las dificultades que normalmente afronta cualquier escenario de coordinación, como por ejemplo: la falta de definición de personas responsables al interior de las entidades que faciliten la interlocución intersectorial; los cambios de personal que afectan la interacción entre sectores; el desconocimiento del Convenio Marco, y sus implicaciones legales para el Estado colombiano, lo que conlleva el desconocimiento respecto de las responsabilidades en la implementación del tratado; la interacción cercana que algunos sectores, por sus características, tienen con la industria tabacalera, lo que constituye un obstáculo para la comprensión sobre la aplicación del artículo 5.3, y del uso de herramientas que garanticen la transparencia y la no interferencia. Posterior a esos primeros 4 encuentros, se desarrollaron los siguientes: IV Encuentro Interinstitucional, 18 de mayo de 2018. Las entidades discutieron sobre los avances y desafíos del Proyecto FCTC 2030, liderado por la Secretaría del Convenio y mediante el cual Colombia será beneficiario de recursos para avanzar en el fortalecimiento de sus capacidades nacionales frente al convenio en temas prioritarios como: 1) el fortalecimiento de inspección, vigilancia y control; 2) la cesación del consumo de tabaco; y 3) el desarrollo de una acción intersectorial coordinada. Además, se analizaron los pasos a seguir en el marco del fortalecimiento de este mecanismo informal de articulación. V Encuentro Intersectorial, 8 de noviembre de 2018. El encuentro se enfocó en el Proyecto FCTC - 2030 para la implementación del artículo 5.2 del CMCT, así como sobre el establecimiento del mecanismo de Coordinación Nacional. En ese sentido, el Ministerio de Salud y Protección Social, realizó una presentación sobre la metodología propuesta, donde el paso inicial consistía en realizar una encuesta por parte de cada una de las entidades, la cual permitiera realizar un diagnóstico sobre el estado actual del mecanismo de coordinación. VI Encuentro Intersectorial, 5 de julio de 2019. La reunión tuvo como objetivo principal presentar el Proyecto FCTC-2030 y el Taller de Cooperación Técnica Sur-Sur (Brasil-Colombia) para formación en la implementación de Artículo 5 del Convenio Marco para Control de Tabaco; analizar la información relativa a la Presentación en 2020 del próximo informe nacional sobre la aplicación del CMCT; y la postulación de Colombia al proyecto piloto de revisión de la implementación del CMCT. VII Encuentro Intersectorial, 5 al 9 de agosto de 2019. Taller de Cooperación Técnica Sur-Sur (Brasil – Colombia) para la formación en la implementación del Artículo 5 del Convenio Marco para el Control de Tabaco. En el marco del mencionado taller se discutieron, entre otros, la creación formal de un mecanismo nacional de coordinación (MNC); el aumento de los impuestos y fiscalización a productos del tabaco; así como el relacionamiento con la industria del tabaco. VIII Encuentro Intersectorial, 25 al 27 de septiembre de 2019. Visita de una Misión Internacional para la aceleración de la implementación del CMCT de la OMS en Colombia. En el mencionado encuentro se discutieron temas relativos a los impuestos al tabaco; la ratificación del Protocolo para la Eliminación del Comercio Ilícito de Productos del Tabaco; y se analizaron algunas generalidades frente a los nuevos productos como los cigarrillos electrónicos y los dispositivos de calentamiento de tabaco. VIX Encuentro Intersectorial, 12 de diciembre de 2019. Presentación del “Caso de inversión a favor del control del tabaco en Colombia – Caso a favor de la inversión en la aplicación del Convenio Marco de la OMS para el Control del Tabaco” por parte de PNUD y RTI International. En el marco de esta reunión, se presentaron algunas recomendaciones para Colombia como: 1) aumentar los impuestos al tabaco; 2) aumentar las prohibiciones para fumar en espacios públicos; 3) generar un aumento al menos del 50% en las advertencias sanitarias de las cajetillas de cigarrillos; e 4) implementar el empaquetado neutro. X Encuentro Intersectorial, 3 de febrero de 2020. La presente reunión tuvo como objetivo: 1) informar a los miembros de la mesa la importancia de la presentación del informe de Colombia relativo a la implementación del Convenio Marco para el Control del Tabaco; 2) actualización sobre los próximos encuentros a realizar en el marco del Proyecto FCTC 2030; 3) Presentación de la Hoja de Ruta y el Plan de Trabajo a desarrollarse durante el 2020. Con esto, y considerando que la acción intersectorial es una de las prioridades del Proyecto FCTC 2030, se planteó una iniciativa de cooperación Sur-Sur con Brasil, con el objetivo de promover una implementación integral del CMCT en los países participantes por medio de la creación o fortalecimiento de un Mecanismo Nacional de Coordinación, dando prioridad a las políticas de control del tabaquismo dentro de la agenda gubernamental y visando la creación de la respuesta multisectorial en los diferentes niveles de gobernanza. En el marco de esta iniciativa, y con recursos del Proyecto FCTC 2030 y del Gobierno de Brasil se: a) Capacitó al equipo del gobierno colombiano sobre el Convenio Marco, el Mecanismo de Coordinación Nacional y la interferencia de la industria del tabaco; b) desarrolló una propuesta sobre cómo podría funcionar este mecanismo en el país. Actualmente, se está en proceso de darle continuidad a esta iniciativa para poder llegar a una versión final de la propuesta de funcionamiento del mecanismo. Respecto a la protección de las política de salud pública contra los intereses comerciales y otros intereses creados de la industria tabacalera, se cuenta con un resumen de política basado en evidencia que aborda los mejores mecanismos para proteger a las políticas de salud pública contra la interferencia de la industria del tabaco. Sin embargo, aún falta desarrollar directrices nacionales y territoriales más claras para regular la interacción entre el gobierno y dicha industria. Así mismo, y por primera vez, en el Plan Decenal de Salud Pública se definió explícitamente como una de las estrategias de la Dimensión de Vida Saludable y Condiciones No Transmisibles, la protección de las políticas públicas de salud frente a los intereses comerciales o de otra índole de la industria tabacalera. En este marco, el MSPS, al comprender las interacciones necesarias con la industria como sujetos regulados, ha definido unas reglas informales, en cumplimiento de lo establecido en el artículo 5.3 y sus Directrices: a) se debe definir objeto y agenda de reunión; b) se hace lista de asistencia y acta de reunión; c) si se puede, se invita a miembros de la sociedad civil como veedores de la reunión; d) no se asume ningún compromiso más allá de lo que sea necesario para el pleno cumplimiento del CMCT. Adicionalmente, el Ministerio de Salud en sus asistencias y acompañamientos técnicos a entidades del sector de salud y otros sectores como la policía, realiza capacitaciones específicas relacionadas con la protección de las políticas de la interferencia de la industria tabacalera. El Decreto Ley 4107 de 2011 crea el Ministerio de Salud y Protección Social. Dentro de la estructura organizacional, se creó la Subdirección de Enfermedades No Transmisibles, la cual se organiza a través de 3 grupos: 1) Estilos, modos y condiciones de vida saludable; 2) Gestión integrada de la salud bucal, cardiovascular, bucal, del cáncer y otras condiciones crónicas; y 3) Gestión integrada para la salud mental. Transversal a los dos primeros grupos existe un equipo de control de tabaco que sirve como centro de coordinación para el tema. La unidad está conformada por profesionales de diferentes disciplinas (derecho, ciencias políticas, medicina, economía, ingeniería industrial, epidemiología), lo que ha enriquecido el enfoque multidisciplinar de las acciones que se han planteado en el control del tabaco a corto, mediano y largo plazo. A nivel intersectorial, está la Comisión Intersectorial de Salud Pública, que es la instancia de coordinación y seguimiento entre los diferentes sectores responsables en el desarrollo del Plan Decenal de Salud Pública, en el que se han incluido metas y estrategias específicas para control de tabaco. De manera más específica, el Ministerio de Relaciones Exteriores junto con el Ministerio de Salud ha coordinado el desarrollo de Encuentros intersectoriales en los que se han abordado temáticas específicas relacionadas con los procesos de inspección, vigilancia y control, cesación del consumo de tabaco, y comercio ilícito de productos de tabaco. Se espera fortalecer este escenario con la ejecución del Proyecto FCTC 2030. El Decreto Ley 4107 de 2011 crea el Ministerio de Salud y Protección Social.

European Union The EU has a solid and comprehensive pack of measures to control tobacco. However, depending on the specific area, the EU has more or less competencies compared with the EU Member States; For example, the EU legislates in certain areas (notably on tobacco products and on tobacco advertising) and carries out actions to support, co-ordinate or supplement the actions of the EU Member States (notably on smoke free environments). The European Commission, within its Directorate General for Health and Food Safety, has a unit in charge of tobacco control matters for the EU. Since 2012, the European Anti-Fraud Office (OLAF) has attributed the investigative and policy-making functions to separate Directorates in order to avoid any perception of a potential conflict of interest. In 2014 a team fully devoted to the fight against illicit tobacco trade through policy analysis and development was set up in OLAFs Policy Directorate; there is also an investigation unit responsible for fraud investigations related to tobacco products.

Philippines The national coordinating mechanism (NCM) for WHO FCTC was strengthened through a three (3) fold strategy: policy issuance, multi-sectoral coordination, and formalization of partnerships. The first strategy, policy issuance of DO 2019-0112, formalized and clarified the roles of selected offices within the Department which is necessary as the DOH stands as the lead technical agency for WHO FCTC. The DO has been helpful in providing direction relative to the roles and responsibilities of DOH offices. The Office of the Chief of Staff was designated as the oversight office, while the Bureau of International Health Cooperation (BIHC) was assigned as the Departments technical secretariat and focal center for the said convention. The following bureaus/service were assigned as focal points in the Department that shall collaborate with other government agencies for the following articles: a. Health Policy Development and Planning Bureau (HPDPB) - Articles 6 b. Disease Prevention and Control Bureau (DPCB) - Article 8, 14, 17, 18 c. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) - Articles 9, 10, 11, 15, 16 d. Health Promotion and Communication Service (HPCS) - Articles 12, 13 e. Legal Service -Article 5.3, 19 f. Epidemiology Bureau (EB) - Article 20 The second strategy, the conduct of bi-annual WHO FCTC Partners Meeting, was executed to steer multi-sectoral discussion and collaboration. This strategy is designed to monitor and evaluate progress of implementation, harmonize plans, and address pressing challenges. The third strategy is the MOA with key government agencies, which is critical to ensure sustainability of efforts and continuity of good practices in the Philippines. On the sub-national level, the Department Memorandum (DM) No. 2019-0349: Provisional Guidelines on the Establishment of a Regional Tobacco Control Network (RTCN) strengthened the coordination through the RTCNs and the Centers for Health Development (CHDs). Likewise, subnational Partners’ Meetings are being conducted by local government units (LGUs). In December 2015, the management of the National Tobacco Control Program was transferred from the Health Promotion and Communication Service (HPCS) to the Disease Prevention and Control Bureau (DPCB) by virtue of Department Order 2015-0270. In addition, four (4) full time staff were hired to implement the Bloomberg Initiative Project RIOC-401B. Some departments of the DOH assign staff from their unit to work on tobacco control based on demand. NTCCO activities were financed from the grant provided by the International Union Against Tuberculosis and Lung Disease (The Union) with counterpart funds from the DPCB. The DOH has developed its second National Tobacco Control Strategy document for 2017-2022. It summarizes the targets and approaches to reduce tobacco-related burden on non-communicable diseases as well as address the remaining challenges from the first NTCS in 2011-2016. The document details the following nine priority areas for action: protecting public health policies from tobacco industry interference; eliminating remaining tobacco advertising, promotion, and sponsorhip; reducing affordability and accessibility of tobacco products; implementing stronger measures to protect the public from exposure to tobacco smoke; strengthening surveillance data; levelling up the DOH Red Orchid Award; strengthening mass media campaign and other communication strategies to sustain public awareness; institutionalizing tobacco control; and regulating tobacco products and strengthening tobacco cessation. At the sub-national levels, Regional Tobacco Control Networks headed by the non-communicable diseases (NCD) coordinators of the Regional Health Offices coordinated and implemented tobacco control activities in their respective regions. The Department of Health (DOH) designated the Health Promotion and Communication Service (HPCS) as the National Tobacco Control Coordinating Office (NTCCO) through Department Order # 2011-0029 dated February 7, 2011. The HPCS served as the Tobacco Control Unit with its HPCS Director as the focal point person for tobacco control. Selected staff from the HPCS provided about 25% - 75% of their full time employment to tobacco control. In addition, three (3) full time staff were hired to implement the Bloomberg Initiative Project RIOC-401B. Some departments of the DOH assign staff from their unit to work on tobacco control based on demand. NTCCO activities were financed from the grant provided by the International Union Against Tuberculosis and Lung Disease (The Union) with counterpart funds from the HPCS. The DOH has a National Tobacco Control strategy document for 2011-2016. This document outlines the goals and strategies to implement tobacco control in the country. 13 Sector-wide Anti-Tobacco (SWAT) Sub-committees were organized to coordinate activities related to the implementation of FCTC Articles 5.3, 6,8,9,10,11,12,13,14,15,17,18 and 20.

The NSCPs multi-pronged approach includes legislation, taxation, public education, partnerships to prevent the initiation of smoking especially by youths, and encourage smokers to quit the habit of smoking. The NSCP has now been renamed the National Tobacco Control Programme (NTCP). The Health Promotion Board (HPB) is a statutory board under the Ministry of Health, which formulates national policies, develops evidence-based strategies and innovative programmes for health promotion, disease prevention and patient education.

Solomon Islands A national coordinating mechanism for tobacco control in the country was established May 2014 with the formulation of a national stakeholder group for tobacco control and also the endorsement of a technical advisory group. Prior to May 2014, the national coordinating group/committee for tobacco control in the country was the Tobacco Control Taskforce Committee (TCTFC). The TCTFC was mandated by the Minister of Health with the task of formulating the tobacco control regulations. However, in the absence of a national coordinating mechanism the TCTFC has been the interim advisory group for tobacco control in the country. This group consisted of a chairman (under secretary of Health Improvement), a vice chairman (National Director, Health Promotions), the national tobacco control focal point (National Director of NCD Prevention and Control) and members which also includes the National Tobacco Control Coordinator. Other members include a Ministry of Education representative, Ministry of Finance and Treasury and the civil society. TCTFC has been coordinating all the efforts geared towards tobacco control from 2010 up till the year of 2014,May, when a wider and more extended group of stakeholders met and the national tobacco control stakeholders committee was established along with the endorsement of the technical advisory group (TAG) for tobacco control. The TAG for tobacco control is generally an extension of the TCTFC. As mentioned above the national focal point for tobacco control is the Director for NCDs prevention and control, and this commenced in 2010. Before 2010, the focal point was the Director of Health Promotions. We now have a tobacco control unit, with two people coordinating this unit with support from the staff from both the NCD Department and the Health Promotions Department. Tobacco Focal Point now is still the Director for NCDs. We are now looking at legislating a technical advisory group for tobacco control in the amendments for the Tobacco Control Act 2010 which we will be putting through Cabinet this year. This group will continue to coordinate tobacco control activities in the country especially the implementation and enforcement of the Tobacco Control legislation. We will be doing recruitments as well for the Tobacco Control Unit to bulk up the work force for compliance and enforcement of the tobacco control laws.
