Tobacco Control Policies

Chad became a Party to the WHO Framework Convention on Tobacco Control on April 30, 2006.
 
Smoke Free Places: Smoking is prohibited in all indoor public places, indoor workplaces, and in all public transportation. Smoking is also prohibited in some outdoor areas such as outbuildings, courtyards, terraces, and other places that are close enough to indoor places that smoke may pass into the interior.
 
Tobacco Advertising, Promotion and Sponsorship: All forms of tobacco advertising, promotion, and sponsorship are prohibited.
 
Tobacco Packaging and Labeling: Combined picture and text health warnings are required to cover at least 80 percent of the front and back of tobacco product packaging. Warnings are required to rotate every two years. In addition, misleading packaging, including terms such as “light” and “mild” and other signs, is prohibited.

Tobacco Taxation and Prices: The World Health Organization recommends raising tobacco excise taxes so that they account for at least 70 percent of retail prices. Tobacco excise taxes in Chad are well below these recommendations.
