Tobacco Track & Trace Systems Across Africa

Africa Consulting Team

Oxford Economics Africa

The objective of this study is to review the progress some African countries have made in implementing track & trace (T&T) systems, to assess the effectiveness of these systems, and to evaluate their compliance with the Protocol.

The study then evaluates the regional T&T regime implemented across the 27 European Union (EU) countries and considers the potential advantages of a regional approach from an African context. Finally, it makes recommendations for African countries to improve the ITP compliance and the efficacy of their national T&T systems.

Based on a review of the FCTC ITP and solutions currently implemented in Africa and the EU, it is recommended that African nations implement fully digital T&T solutions and adopt a regional approach where possible.
