World No Tobacco Day

The World No Tobacco Day is celebrated around the world every year on May 31 to inform the public on the dangers of using tobacco, the business practices of tobacco companies, what the World Health Organisation is doing to fight the tobacco epidemic and what people around the world can do to claim their right to health and healthy living and to protect future generations. The World No Tobacco Day was first introduced in 1987 to draw global attention to the tobacco epidemic and the preventable death and disease it causes.
