Today is World Health Organisation campaign for ‘World No Tobacco Day’
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.
Personal Touch Fitness have posters displayed and leaflets available to help members on their journey of quitting. Employees will be talking with members and encouraging smokers to stop at least for today. This is supported by our activities and services to improve employee physical and mental health.
The campaign also serves as a call to action, advocating for effective policies to reduce tobacco consumption and engaging stakeholders across multiple sectors in the fight for tobacco control.
