WHO is the directing and coordinating authority for health within the United Nations system. It is responsible for providing leadership on global health matters, shaping the health research agenda, setting norms and standards, articulating evidence-based policy options, providing technical support to countries and monitoring and assessing health trends. The WHO Framework Convention on Tobacco Control is the first treaty negotiated under the support of the World Health Organization. It was adopted by the World Health Assembly on 21 May 2003 and entered into force on 27 February 2005. It has since become one of the most widely embraced treaties in UN history. Egypt is one of the countries that willingly embraced this treaty.

49 percent of these areas are medical institutions and 80 percent are public transportations
Egypt reported that there is a fine of 50 to 100 pounds for public smoking
This claimed fine has no apparent existence in the Egyptian community
2-Education and public awareness
There seems to be a lack of educational and awareness programs that inform and educate the public about smoking.
There is also a shortage in support programs for people who want to quit smoking.
Even though there are laws in Egypt banning the sales of cigarettes to minors.
These laws are rarely implemented.
Venders don’t check for I.Ds.
They also sell individual cigarettes which facilitates the use of tobacco to minors.
People consume eighty five million cigarettes every year in Egypt
Egypt pays about three billion dollars a year in the treatment of people who have smoking related diseases
