World No Tobacco Day is an observance that promotes awareness about the dangers of tobacco use and the importance of a tobacco-free world.

World No Tobacco Day aims to encourage a reduction in worldwide tobacco use, which is considered one of the leading causes of preventable deaths.
World No Tobacco Day was first initiated by the World Health Organization (WHO) in 1987. This annual observance has positively influenced public policy, sparked global movements for tobacco control, and raised awareness about the consequences of tobacco on our health. In line with the Ministry of Health's goal of a smoke-free nation by 2025, this day provides an opportunity for New Zealanders to support local and national efforts that can help achieve this target.
To observe World No Tobacco Day in New Zealand, various organizations plan events centered around smoking cessation, awareness, and prevention. Schools, workplaces, and public spaces often participate by promoting the observance and distributing educational materials. World No Tobacco Dayis observed on May 31st annually, serving as a reminder to New Zealanders to take action towards a healthier, tobacco-free future.
