On the International Scene:

The tobacco industry has long claimed that plain packaging violates World Trade Organization agreements. That claim was dismissed in June 2018 when the World Trade Organization released its decision upholding Australia’s tobacco plain packaging as consistent with WTO trade obligations. Read the news release.

This decision gives a big boost to international momentum in favour of plain packaging, and will accelerate implementation worldwide.  It is a big win for public health.
