World No Tobacco Day
Join the world in celebrating World No Tobacco Day on May 31. This year's theme is ban tobacco advertising, promotion and sponsorship.

  • the unavoidable exposure of youth to tobacco marketing;
  • the failure of the tobacco industry to effectively self-regulate; and
  • the ineffectiveness of partial bans.
