These country profiles present the progress by country of the implementation of the MPOWER technical package during the period 2018-2021 and form a supplement to the Report on Tobacco Control for the Region of the Americas 2022. The country profile focuses on the status of implementation of the MPOWER package in each of the 35 Member States of the Pan American Health Organization. The data are presented in two summary sheets: MPOWER Summary sheet showing the most significant progress made with the six MPOWER measures, as well as classification of the country in each category; and the evolution of prices, taxes, and tax structure of the country. Collectively, 26 of the 35 Member States within the Region are implementing at least one measure of the MPOWER technical package at the highest level of application, accounting for 96% of the Region’s population being protected from the harms of tobacco.
