World No Tobacco
Theme: Tobacco Industry Interference
World No Tobacco Day (WNTD) is
commemorated on 31 May every year. The theme for this years WNTD is Tobacco
focuses on the need to expose and counter the tobacco industry's brazen and
increasingly aggressive attempts to undermine the WHO Framework Convention on
Tobacco Control (WHO FCTC).
Tobacco Day 2012 will educate policy-makers and the general public about the
tobacco industry's harmful tactics.
It will also
be in keeping with the letter and the spirit of the WHO FCTC. The preamble of
the treaty recognizes "the need to be alert to any efforts by the
tobacco industry to undermine or subvert tobacco control efforts and the need
to be informed of activities of the tobacco industry that have a negative
impact on tobacco control efforts".
On World No
Tobacco Day 2012, and throughout the rest of the year, WHO will urge
countries to put the fight against tobacco industry interference at the heart
of their efforts to control the global tobacco epidemic.
