Every year, on 31 May, Tulip Hospital organised World No Tobacco Day (WNTD) 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.
The campaign goal is to increase awareness on:
• The negative impact that tobacco has on people’s lung health, from cancer to chronic respiratory disease,
• The fundamental role lungs play for the health and well-being of all people.
• Emerging evidence on the link between tobacco smoking and tuberculosis deaths;
• Implications of second-hand exposure for lung health of people across age groups;
