Every year, on 31 May, WHO and global partners mark World No Tobacco Day (WNTD). WNTD provides an opportunity to highlight the harmful and deadly effects of tobacco use and exposure to second hand smoke, to discourage the use of tobacco in any form and to advocate for effective policies to reduce tobacco consumption.
The ultimate goal of WNTD is to contribute to protecting present and future generations not only from the devastating health consequences due to tobacco, but also from the social, environmental and economic scourges of tobacco use and exposure to tobacco smoke. Only by working together, government and civil society across all sectors will we achieve this goal.
This booklet captures a very brief snapshot of WNTD 2020 as observed by government programs and civil society organizations in the Pacific islands.
