World No Tobacco Day 2019 : “Tobacco and Lung Health”

Every year, on 31 May, the World Health Organization (WHO) and global partners celebrate World No Tobacco Day (WNTD). The annual campaign is an opportunity to raise awareness on the harmful and deadly effects of tobacco use and second-hand smoke exposure, and to discourage the use of tobacco in any form.
The focus of World No Tobacco Day 2019 is on “tobacco and lung health.” The campaign will increase awareness on:
  • The negative impact that tobacco has on people’s lung health, from cancer to chronic respiratory disease.
  • The fundamental role lungs play for the health and well-being of all people.

  • Tobacco kills up to half of its users.
  • Tobacco kills more than 7 million people each year. More than 6 million of those deaths are the result of direct tobacco use while around 890 000 are the result of non-smokers being exposed to second-hand smoke.
  • Around 80% of the world’s 1.1 billion smokers live in low- and middle-income countries.
  • 56.9 MILLION ANNUAL DEATHS, 8 MILLION DEATHS caused by tobacco from all causes, 1 MILLION DEATHS due to second-hand smoke exposure
