As every year, May 31 is World No Tobacco Day. The theme for 2017 is: “Tobacco – A threat to Development“
Tobacco industry poses threats to the sustainable development of all countries, including the health and economic well-being of their citizens. Governments and the public should take measures to promote health and development by confronting the global tobacco crisis. Tobacco use is the second leading cause of death globally (after hypertension) and is currently responsible for killing one in 10 adults worldwide.
