World No Tobacco Day in
Days to go:
World No Tobacco Day is an event observed around the globe to draw attention to the prevalence of tobacco use and its effects on human health. This day seeks to encourage individuals to refrain from tobacco consumption for at least 24 hours while educating them about the need for policies to reduce tobacco use. Organized by the World Health Organization (WHO), this day emphasizes the importance of implementing strategies to reduce tobacco use especially in a country with a high tobacco consumption rates.
In Nigeria, the harmful effects of tobacco consumption represent a major challenge given tobacco's impact on non-communicable diseases such as cancer and cardiovascular illnesses. According to WHO, Nigeria has one of the highest smoking prevalence rates in Africa with an estimated 4.5 million adult smokers in the country.
World No Tobacco Day campaigns in Nigeria aim to encourage policymakers and stakeholders in the healthcare sector to enforce strict anti-smoking laws, promote tobacco cessation interventions, and raise awareness about tobacco's dangers. World No Tobacco Day is observed annually on May 31st.
