The next #TakeDownTobacco National Day of Action will happen on Friday, March 31, 2023.
On the eve of April Fools’ Day, youth advocates across the country will again join together to call Big Tobacco’s bluff and expose them for who they really are: jokers who gamble with people’s lives. Learn more here: https://www.takedowntobacco.org/
This yearly celebration informs the public on the dangers of using tobacco, the business practices of tobacco companies, what the World Health Organization (WHO) 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 Member States of the World Health Organization created World No Tobacco Day in 1987 to draw global attention to the tobacco epidemic and the preventable death and disease it causes. In 1987, the World Health Assembly passed Resolution WHA40.38, calling for 7 April 1988 to be a “a world no-smoking day.” In 1988, Resolution WHA42.19 was passed, calling for the celebration of World No Tobacco Day, every year on 31 May.
