|Copyright-Free Pictorial Health Warnings
In collaboration with ASEAN Focal Points on Tobacco Control (AFPTC), SEATCA has established a copyright-free pictorial health warning (PHW) image sharing mechanism. It aims to be a one-stop center of copyright-free regional PHW images as well as to minimize the administrative processes that each country would have to go through in obtaining official permission of copyright-free PHWs from country of origin. This marks one of the first ASEAN regional collaboration initiatives to strengthen and advance tobacco control policy in the region, specifically for Article 11 (Packaging and Labelling of Tobacco Products) of the World Health Organization (WHO) Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (FCTC).
