Eligibility

Affiliations with tobacco entities (current and/or during the past five years) will make an individual ineligible to attend or present at the conference.

Also, in keeping with the Conference’s long time policy, anyone affiliated with or who receives funding from the Philip Morris International funded Foundation for a Smoke-free World is ineligible to attend and will not be admitted

This policy is aligned with the World Health Organization’s Framework Convention on Tobacco Control, Article 5.3, which states in its guidelines: ‘There is a fundamental and irreconcilable conflict between the tobacco industry’s interest and public health policy interests.’
