31st may 2013 is the world tobacco free day
31st may, marks the world no tobacco day, for WHO and partners. The day highlights the health risks, and looks at effective policies to reduce tobacco consumption.
Tobacco is responsible for killing one in 10 adults. This year the focus is on ban tobacco advertising, promotion and sponsorship.
The specific goals would be
- To implement the WHOFCTC article 13 and its guidelines to comprehensively ban tobacco advertising, promotion and sponsorship such that fewer people try tobacco out.
- To identify and counteract the local, national and international efforts to counter tobacco industry efforts to stall or stop ban of tobacco advertising and promotion of sponsorship.
1. Who are the major tobacco advertisers
2. Direct and indirect tobacco advertising.
what i really wonder about is how much does that warning against tobacco usage really deter the users or does it trigger a curiosity to experiment?
