In particular, the knowledge, expertise and political connections of representatives from NGOs organizations – including the Inter- American Heart Foundation (FIC), the Alliance for Tobacco Control (ACTA) and the Mexican Council Against Tobacco (CMCT) – played an important role in supporting the promotion and adoption of a comprehensive smoke-free law in Mexico DF.
