Australia Priorities under the current National Tobacco Strategy are listed below: 1. Protect public health policy, including tobacco control policies, from tobacco industry interference 2. Strengthen mass media campaigns to: motivate smokers to quit and recent quitters to remain quit; discourage uptake of smoking; and reshape social norms about smoking 3. Continue to reduce the affordability of tobacco products 4. Bolster and build on existing programs and partnerships to reduce smoking rates among Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people 5. Strengthen efforts to reduce smoking among populations with a high prevalence of smoking 6. Eliminate remaining advertising, promotion and sponsorship of tobacco products 7. Consider further regulation of the contents, product disclosure and supply of tobacco products and alternative nicotine delivery systems 8. Reduce exceptions to smoke-free workplaces, public places and other settings 9. Provide greater access to a range of evidence-based cessation services to support smokers to quit https://www.health.gov.au/sites/default/files/national-tobacco-strategy-2012-2018_1.pdf The ongoing compliance and enforcement that governs Australia’s tobacco plain packaging, including continued education and the training of retailers regarding their legal responsibilities with the measures remains a strong priority for Australia. Further, various Australian Government agencies are currently developing a guidance to increase understanding and knowledge of Australia’s obligations under Article 5.3. Australia has also commenced a Mid-Point Review of our National Tobacco Strategy 2012-2018, and plans to undertake a review of the graphic health warnings that appear on our tobacco products. All Australian governments are exploring options to minimise the risks associated with the marketing and use of ENDS/ENNDS in Australia. Australia will continue to implement mass media campaigns at both the national and sub national level. In addition, Australia is in the process of preparing a Regulation Impact Statement to explore options for further implementation of WHO FCTC Articles 9 and 10. The ongoing compliance and enforcement that governs Australias tobacco plain packaging, including continued education and the training of retailers regarding their legal responsibilities with the measures remains a strong priority for Australia. Further, Australia is in the process of undertaking the development and promulgation of a Guidance Note regarding our obligations under WHO FCTC Article 5.3. This will provide Commonwealth agencies and Statutory Authorities with guidance on obligations under this Article, because as noted below, tobacco industry interference continues to be a ongoing challenge for Australia.

Canada Canadas Tobacco Strategy is a comprehensive, integrated and sustained approach to drive down the smoking rate in Canada to less than 5% by 2035 through focused action to help Canadians quit smoking, including groups of Canadians with the highest rates of tobacco use, and to prevent youth and non-tobacco users from nicotine addiction. It also takes a pragmatic and compassionate approach to support Canadians who already use tobacco to reduce the negative consequences of nicotine addiction. Priority areas align with the FCTC but on a national level, in many ways. These include: • helping Canadians quit tobacco; • protecting young people and non-tobacco users; • work with Indigenous groups to create specific plans for Indigenous people; and • strengthen our science, surveillance and partnerships. Through Canada’s Tobacco Strategy, the Government of Canada is: • continuing to strengthen legislative and regulatory measures to protect youth and non-smokers and actively enforcing current requirements under the federal Tobacco and Vaping Products Act and regulations; • working with the provinces and territories to modernize smoking cessation services across the country to make it easier, faster and more appealing for smokers to access the support and tools they need in a way that best works for them; • expanding funding for tobacco programs that target groups of Canadians disproportionately affected by smoking; • updating and improving the effectiveness of public education resources, including marketing campaigns to educate youth, young adults and their parents about the harms and risks associated with tobacco and vaping products and nicotine addiction; • exploring and consulting on potential options that could further reduce the appeal and addictiveness of tobacco and vaping products, including the regulation of nicotine content; • studying the health impacts of nicotine products and understanding how Canadians use them to inform decision-making; and • maintaining and supporting work done around the world as a part of the World Health Organization’s Framework Convention on Tobacco Control. In collaboration with the provinces and territories, First Nations, and international law enforcement partners, the Government of Canada also continues to combat illicit tobacco, and is undertaking independent research to better understand and assess Canada’s evolving contraband tobacco market. In Canada, tobacco control responsibilities are shared by multiple levels of government. In addition to federal initiatives, all provinces and territories (P/Ts) currently have tobacco control legislation in place, some with restrictions beyond those found in the federal Tobacco and Vaping Products Act. For example, a number of Canadas provinces and territories have enacted legislation raising the minimum age for furnishing a tobacco or vaping product from 18 to 19 or even 21 years of age. Rules on smoke-free spaces are generally the responsibility of P/T and municipal governments, with the exception of federal workplaces and federally regulated spaces, such as banks and commercial aircraft. All P/Ts also have extensive tobacco control strategies in place. P/T spending on tobacco control is estimated to represent more than half of the total tobacco control expenditure in Canada. The Government of Canada has implemented nearly all of the available measures recognized by the WHO as good practices in tobacco control and continues to expand and explore opportunities for further action to drive down smoking rates. Canada recognizes the importance of a comprehensive approach to tobacco control and remains committed to the implementation of the provisions of the FCTC, subject to sovereign right. Canada continues to implement the FCTC through the Federal Tobacco Control Strategy (FTCS). The FTCS has helped reduce smoking rates to an all-time low. The comprehensive and collaborative approach of the Strategy will help to preserve the gains of the past decade and continue the downward trend in smoking to reduce tobacco related death and disease among Canadians. To protect Canadians, especially young people, from the health consequences of tobacco use, Canada continues to focus on: • preventing children and youth from starting to smoke; • helping people to quit smoking; helping Canadians protect themselves from second-hand smoke; and • regulating the manufacture, sale, labeling and promotion of tobacco products by administering the Tobacco Act. The Government of Canada will continue to implement and enforce a strict regulatory environment that limits the tobacco industrys ability to use marketing to attract new smokers, and will continue to inform Canadians about the health hazards of smoking. This includes introducing plain packaging requirements for all tobacco products. The 2012-17 Strategy places a specific emphasis on two groups with higher rates of smoking than most Canadians and on tobacco as a risk factor for serious disease. Specifically, Health Canada is committed to working with First Nations and Inuit partners to take steps to reduce and prevent commercial tobacco use, and has launched a marketing awareness and outreach campaign in partnership with the Canadian Cancer Society, using popular channels like Facebook and Twitter, to get young people talking together about smoking, about quitting, and remaining smoke-free. Canada remains a strong and committed global partner to reduce tobacco use. Canada will continue to follow and promote best practices set out in the Framework Convention on Tobacco Control. Canada will also cooperate on cross-border efforts to stop trafficking of illegal tobacco products. Canada will continue to participate in multilateral negotiations to develop international guidelines and respond to requests to share our expertise in tobacco control.

Chile Dentro de las prioridades existentes, podemos mencionar la Cesación Tabáquica y para ello, durante los años 2018-2019 se implemento un Plan Piloto de cesación tabàquica, en 13 Centros de Salud Familiar en la Región Metropolitana . Esta estrategia tuvo como objetivo "Elevar el nivel de salud de las personas, mejorando la capacidad individual para cesar el consumo de tabaco, otorgando a los usuarios intervenciones individuales, grupales y tratamiento farmacológico, en los centros de Salud Familiar y Comunitario" Actualmente los resultados de este Plan Piloto están en estudio por una institución especializada en el tema. Estos resultados permitirán optimizar las falencias encontradas y expandir la estrategia de cesación de acuerdo a los recursos financieros al resto del país. Otras de las prioridades es la regulación de los Cigarrillo Electrónicos, para lo cual se ha enviado al Congreso Nacional las modificaciones a la Ley del Tabaco Nª 19.419, que significa homologar estos producto de tabaco a las mismas normativas de los cigarrillos, vale decir Prohibición de fumar en espacios públicos cerrados, prohibición de publicidad, prohibición de venta a menores de 18 años, deben contener las advertencias sanitarias determinadas por Decreto. Las prioridades tienen relación con el mejoramiento de la legislación vigente, entre las cuales se encuentran la implementación del empaque genérico, aumento del tamaño de la advertencia sanitaria de productos de tabaco , prohibición de exhibición de productos de tabaco, fortalecimiento de la Autoridad Sanitaria que significa el poder sancionar directamente la transgresión a la Ley 19419.

Poland Priorities are the same as two years ago: A total ban on smoking in all public places and worksites; a total ban on advertisement and promotion of tobacco products (especially concerning points of sale advertising and promoting tobacco products during mass events); Implementing and strengthening progressive tax and price policy for tobacco products (excise tobacco tax on average EU level); ensuring sufficient funding for tobacco control and primary prevention of tobacco-attributable morbidity and mortality. Priorities are the same as two years ago: A total ban on smoking in all public places and worksites; a total ban on advertisement and promotion of tobacco products (especially concerning points of sale advertising and promoting tobacco products during mass events); Implementing and strengthening progressive tax and price policy for tobacco products (excise tobacco tax on average EU level); ensuring sufficient funding for tobacco control and primary prevention of tobacco-attributable morbidity and mortality. In order to monitor the changes in tobacco use and smoking patterns it is necessary to establish a surveillance system, that would include surveys conducted on large sample of respondents (at least 8000 or larger ), such as GATS. It is necessary to conduct such surveys on regular basis (i.e. every 5 years). Such monitoring system would allow for more detailed analyses of changes in tobacco use patterns in different socio-demographic groups. As lung cancer has recently became the first cause of cancer mortality in women, it would also be beneficial to create surveillance system for monitoring tobacco use among females. It is also necessary to ensure regular (i.e. every 3-5 years) implementation of nationwide surveys concerning tobacco use among youth (such as GYTS).
