Pub. L. 86-610 provided that:

"Whereas it is recognized that disease and disability are the

common enemies of all nations and peoples, and that the means,

methods, and techniques for combating and abating the ravages of

disease and disability and for improving the health and health

standards of man should be sought and shared, without regard to

national boundaries and divisions; and

"Whereas advances in combating and abating disease and in the

positive promotion of human health can be stimulated by supporting

and encouraging cooperation among scientists, research workers, and

teachers on an international basis, with consequent benefit to the

health of our people and of all peoples; and

"Whereas there already exist tested means for international

cooperation in matters relating to health, including the World

Health Organization, the Pan American Health Organization, and the

United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF), with which the United

States is identified and associated, and it is highly desirable

that the United States establish domestic machinery for the maximum

mobilization of its health research resources, the more efficiently

to cooperate with and support the research, research-training and

research-planning endeavors of such international organizations:

Therefore be it * * *".

EX. ORD. NO. 13193. FEDERAL LEADERSHIP ON GLOBAL TOBACCO CONTROL

AND PREVENTION

Ex. Ord. No. 13193, Jan. 18, 2001, 66 F.R. 7387, provided:

By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution

and the laws of the United States of America, it is hereby ordered

as follows:

Section 1. Policy. It shall be the policy of the executive branch

to take strong action to address the potential global epidemic of

diseases caused by tobacco use. The executive branch shall

undertake activities to increase its capacity to address global

tobacco prevention and control issues through coordinated domestic

action, limited bilateral assistance to individual nations, and

support to multilateral organizations. International activities

shall be directed towards deterring children from tobacco use,

protecting nonsmokers, and providing information about the adverse

health effects of tobacco use and the health benefits of cessation.

Sec. 2. Responsibilities of Federal Departments and Agencies. (a)

Tobacco Trade Policy. In the implementation of international trade

policy, executive departments and agencies shall not promote the

sale or export of tobacco or tobacco products, or seek the

reduction or removal of foreign government restrictions on the

marketing and advertising of such products, provided that such

restrictions are applied equally to all tobacco or tobacco products

of the same type. Departments and agencies are not precluded from

taking necessary actions in accordance with the requirements and

remedies available under applicable United States trade laws and

international agreements to ensure nondiscriminatory treatment of

United States products. Nothing in this Executive Order shall be

construed (1) to modify the annual executive branch guidance to

United States diplomatic posts on health, trade, and commercial

aspects of tobacco, or (2) to affect any negotiating position of

the United States on the Framework Convention on Tobacco Control.

(b) The Department of Health and Human Services' (HHS) Role in

Tobacco Trade Policy Deliberations. The HHS shall be included in

all deliberations of interagency working groups, chaired by the

United States Trade Representative (USTR), that address issues

relating to trade in tobacco and tobacco products. Through such

participation, HHS shall advise the USTR, and other interested

Federal agencies, of the potential public health impact of any

tobacco-related trade action that is under consideration. Upon

conclusion of a trade agreement that includes provisions

specifically addressing tobacco or tobacco products, the USTR shall

produce and make publicly available a summary describing those

provisions.

(c) International Tobacco Control Needs Assessment. The HHS, with

the cooperation of the Departments of State, Commerce, and

Agriculture, and in consultation with the appropriate national

Ministry of Health, shall conduct a pilot assessment of tobacco use

in a country other than the United States. Such assessment will be

carried out through a compilation and review of surveys and other

needs assessments already available and include:

(1) initial estimates of the burden of disease and other public

health consequences of tobacco use;

(2) the status of tobacco control regulatory measures in place to

curtail tobacco consumption and tobacco related disease; and

(3) an analysis of the marketing, distribution, and manufacturing

practices of tobacco companies in given regions, and the impact of

those practices on smoking rates, particularly among women and

children. Such assessment shall be prepared and provided to

interested agencies and other parties not later than December 31,

2001, and be updated as practicable.

(d) Research and Training in Tobacco Control. The HHS will

develop a research and training program linking institutions in the

United States and certain other countries in the field of tobacco

control. Emphasis will be placed on the collection of standardized

and comparable surveillance data; networks for communication,

information and best practices; and the development and evaluation

of culturally-targeted approaches to preventing tobacco use and

increasing quit rates, especially among women and children.

Sec. 3. General. (a) Executive departments and agencies shall

carry out the provisions of this order to the extent permitted by

law and consistent with their statutory and regulatory authorities

and their enforcement mechanisms.

(b) This order clarifies and strengthens Administration policy

and does not create any right or benefit, substantive or

procedural, enforceable at law by a party against the United

States, its officers or employees, or any other person.

William J. Clinton.
