Excerpt
Message from the Regional Director Much progress has been made to reclaim sports for health since the World Health Organization selected Tobacco Free Sports – Play it Clean! as the theme for World No Tobacco Day in 2002. The Sydney Olympics and the International Football Federation (FIFA) World Cup held in Japan and the Republic of Korea were among a number of sporting events declared smokefree during that year. The Western Pacific Region followed these major events with the tobacco-free South Pacific Games in Fiji and South East Asian (SEA) Games in Viet Nam in 2003. The WHO Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (FCTC), which was approved by the World Health Assembly in May 2003, is the first international public health treaty that seeks to regulate tobacco, and includes provisions for a complete ban on tobacco advertising, including sponsorship of sports. A number of major and powerful sporting bodies made statements in support of the FCTC prior to its endorsement, including FIFA and the Federation of International Motor Sports (FIA). By denouncing the continuing links between sports and tobacco, these and other bodies have paved the way for sports to become tobacco-free at all levels.
