Did you know that nearly 7 million people, worldwide, die each year because of tobacco use. That’s enough to fill about 70 average football stadiums.
On the occasion of World No Tobacco Day, on 31st May, organized by the (WHO) World Health Organization’s Tobacco Free Initiative, let’s ban tobacco advertising, promotion and sponsorship.
WHO is highlighting how tobacco threatens the development of nations worldwide, and is calling on governments to implement strong tobacco control measures. These include banning marketing and advertising of tobacco, promoting plain packaging of tobacco products, raising excise taxes, and making indoor public places and workplaces smoke-free.
Come, let us all do our part and make this world tobacco free.
