The National Committee for Tobacco Control (Comité national contre le tabagisme - CNCT) is the oldest association for the prevention of tobacco in France. It was founded in 1868 and throughout its history, the CNCT has played a spearheading role in promoting and accompanying the major advances in the fight against the scourge of smoking in France. Our vision is a world free from the harm and human tragedy caused by tobacco and its industry.
The missions of the CNCT are mainly articulated around two axis:
- Conducting pilot projects and studies and developing prevention activities by informing the general public, journalists, policymakers and other stakeholders, about all the damages due to tobacco;
- Advancing and enforcing tobacco control laws and regulations based on scientific evidence and best practices by advocacy and by the construction of a strong jurisprudence.
These missions are carried out in collaboration with many national and international tobacco control actors and in close relationship with the French Ministry of Health.
