SEATCA is a multi-sectoral alliance established to support ASEAN countries in developing and implementing effective tobacco control policies. It responds to the serious need to fast-track tobacco control policies in Southeast Asia. Working to identify tobacco control priorities in the region and coordinating efforts on these priorities, SEATCA promotes knowledge-sharing among countries for effective, evidence-based tobacco control measures and regional cooperation among its advocacy partners.
SEATCA is acknowledged by governments and academic institutions for its advancement of tobacco control movements in Southeast Asia. In 2004, the WHO Western Pacific Regional Office (WPRO) presented the World No Tobacco Day Award to SEATCA. WHO-WPRO has since engaged SEATCA to provide technical assistance directly to government officials across the region.
