Tobacco Control Fund

The Tobacco Control Fund was set up particularly to finance measures to stop people from starting to smoke, make it easier to give up smoking and protect non-smokers against passive smoking. The fund receives 2.6 centimes from every packet of cigarettes sold. This makes some 13.5 million francs a year available for tobacco control measures.

Projects supported by the Tobacco Control Fund have to satisfy high quality requirements and make a contribution to the national tobacco control strategy. The current strategy is set out in the Swiss National Strategy on NCDs 2017–2024.
