About World No-Tobacco Day
Every year, on 31 May, the World Health Organization (WHO) and global partners celebrate World No Tobacco Day (WNTD). The annual campaign is an opportunity to raise awareness on the harmful and deadly effects of tobacco use and second-hand smoke exposure, and to discourage the use of tobacco in any form.
This day spreads information across the globe to make people aware and educate them about the harmful effects of tobacco like cancer, tooth decay, staining of teeth, and more.
In response to the tobacco and nicotine industries’ systematic, aggressive and sustained tactics to attract a new generation of tobacco users, World No Tobacco Day 2020 will provide a counter-marketing campaign and empower young people to engage in the fight against Big Tobacco.Find out more
