Traduction en anglais : Cigarette warning labels in Latin America and the carribbean.
This study evaluated the content of health warning labels on 240 varieties of cigarettes sold in 28 countries of South America, Central America, and the Caribbean.
Warning practices in the different countries were compared, with special attention to the phrasing of the message and the product origin: imported, national, or foreign brands made in the country under a manufacturing permit.
It was found that cigarette packages in the largest countries regularly carried warning labels, but in other countries such labeling was infrequent or nonexistent.
In 12 countries, imported cigarettes had no warning label or were labeled only in the language of the country of origin.
Another 12 countries with permits to manufacture foreign products locally added their own warning label.
