Unlike the current covid-19 pandemic, the tobacco pandemic has not been adequately assessed through a human rights law perspective, despite the fact that it raises compelling global health concerns. The ECtHR, in particular, holds a lot of potential for the promotion of the human rights-based fight against tobacco, which can be further tapped.
