OCTOBER 13—18, 2014
Moscow, Russia

Greetings from Minister of Healthcare

I would like to offer my welcome to the participants of the sixth session of the Conference of the Parties to the WHO Framework Convention on Tobacco Control which will be held in the city of Moscow, capital of the Russian Federation October 13-18, 2014 and will bring together around 1,500 representatives from 195 countries.

The WHO FCTC is an important landmark in promoting public health as it provides a new legal dimension for international cooperation in healthcare and is one of the more rapidly and widely embraced treaties in the history of the United Nations.

I wish to all participants productive work, success, prosperity and best of good health.

Looking forward to seeing you at the conference!


Veronika Skvortsova
