About Anti Tobacco Day
"World No Tobacco day" was initiated in 1987 to grab global attention. In 1987, the World Health Assembly passed Resolution WHA40.38, calling for 7th 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.
The objective is to inform people on dangers of using tobacco. The day also aims to reduce 5.4 million early deaths caused due to tobacco related health problems. On May 31st 2008 the WHO called for a complete ban on tobacco advertising. Series of initiatives were taken by World Health Organisation for preventing Tobacco hazards.
