World No Tobacco Day is an annual event designed to raise awareness about the health risks associated with tobacco use and to advocate for effective policies to reduce tobacco consumption. This observance seeks to inform the public about the dangers of using tobacco, the business practices of tobacco companies, and the work governments do to combat the tobacco epidemic. World No Tobacco Day provides an opportunity for individuals to come together to promote a tobacco-free world.
World No Tobacco Day was first established by the World Health Organization (WHO) in 1987. World No Tobacco Day is particularly significant in Australia, where tobacco use remains a leading cause of preventable death and illness. The Australian government has implemented policies such as plain packaging of tobacco products and increasing taxes on cigarettes.
Typical customs to mark the observance of World No Tobacco Day in Australia include educational events, public awareness campaigns, and cessation support programs. World No Tobacco Day is observed on the 31st of May in Australia, bringing together communities to share their experiences and promote smoke-free environments.
