Increase tobacco taxes to finance sustainable development, says Addis Ababa meet – 17 de Julio de 2015 – Bangladesh

Global leaders have endorsed increasing tobacco taxes as “a key strategy” to reduce tobacco consumption and the global burden of non-communicable diseases (NCDs), and help finance sustainable development.

Their recommendations came at the just concluded UN conference in Addis Ababa ahead of the Sep summit, where the post-2015 sustainable development agenda will be adopted for the next 15 years.

An action plan was agreed upon at the conference following seven months of extensive deliberations at different level on how governments can finance progress towards achieving development objectives, including a reduction in the burden of NCDs.
