Chilean cigarette warnings

In August 2006, Chile adopted a new tobacco law which, in addition to establishing smoking restrictions in public places, banning advertising and the promotion of 'light' brands, required that all cigarette packages display a graphic health warning that occupied 50% of the package surface.

The requirement for new health warnings came into effect on November 12, 2006. The warning, shown below, was reinforced with a public information campaign (see billboard).
