World No Tobacco Day
May 31, 2018
Despite the devastating harms of tobacco to heart health, and the availability of solutions to reduce tobacco-related death and disease, knowledge among large sections of the public that tobacco is one of the leading causes of cardiovascular disease is low. World No Tobacco Day 2018 will focus on the impact tobacco has on the cardiovascular health of people worldwide.
World No Tobacco Day is one of eight official WHO health days, as mandated by the World Health Assembly, that are recognized every year.
