Tobacco Industry Interference Index
The Netherlands 2020
The Global Tobacco Industry Interference Index, produced by the Global Center for Good Governance in Tobacco Control (GGTC), is based on a regional index initiated by the Southeast Asia Tobacco Control Alliance (SEATCA), which measures the efforts by governments to tackle and limit tobacco industry interference in tobacco control policy making. The index consists of twenty indicators, grouped in seven themes, drawn directly from Article 5.3 guidelines of the Framework Convention of Tobacco Control (FCTC). Scores for each indicator are accumulated to a final score, which can range from eight to one hundred. A low score on the index implies good government performance in implementing Article 5.3 and subsequent low tobacco industry interference.
This report presents the tobacco industry inference (TII) in the Netherlands, for the period between 1 January 2018 and 31 December 2019.
