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.
