World No Tobacco Day 2020

Date: May 31st 2020

World No Tobacco Day 2020 Theme World No Tobacco Day (WNTD) is observed around the world every year on 31 May. This yearly celebration informs the public on the dangers of using tobacco, the business practices of tobacco companies, what 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. The day is further intended to draw attention to the widespread prevalence of tobacco use and to negative health effects, which currently lead to more than 8 million deaths each year worldwide, including 1.2 million are the result of non-smokers being exposed to second-hand smoke.

The member states of the World Health Organization (WHO) created World No Tobacco Day in 1987. In the past twenty one years, the day has been met with both enthusiasm and resistance around the globe from governments, public health organizations, smokers, growers, and the tobacco industry.

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.

The focus of World No Tobacco Day 2020 is on “tobacco and lung health.”

World No Tobacco Day 2020 Theme:

In many of its WNTD themes and related publicity-materials, the WHO emphasizes the idea of “truth.” Theme titles such as “Tobacco kills, don’t be duped” (2000) and “Tobacco: deadly in any form or disguise” (2006) indicate a WHO belief that individuals may be misled or confused about the true nature of tobacco; the rationale for the 2000 and 2008 WNTD themes identify the marketing strategies and “illusions” created by the tobacco industry as a primary source of this confusion.

The WHO’s WNTD materials present an alternate understanding of the “facts” as seen from a global public health perspective. WNTD publicity materials provide an “official” interpretation of the most up-to-date tobacco-related research and statistics and provide a common ground from which to formulate anti-tobacco arguments around the world.

The theme for World No Tobacco Day 2017 was “Tobacco – a threat to development.”In 2019, it is “Tobacco breaks hearts”. In 2020 The World No Tobacco Day 2020 theme is Make Every Day World No Tobacco Day.

Among smokers who are aware of the dangers of tobacco, most want to quit. Counselling and medication can more than double a tobacco user’s chance of successfully quitting. Currently however, only 23 countries provide comprehensive cessation services with full or partial cost-coverage to assist tobacco users to quit. This represents just 32% of the world’s population.

Health professionals have the greatest potential of any group in society to promote the reduction of tobacco use. Studies show that few people understand the specific health risks of tobacco which include lung cancer, heart disease and stroke.  Brief advice from health professionals can increase quitting success rates by up to 30%, while intensive advice increases the chance of quitting by 84%.

Under WHO’s Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (FCTC), countries are mandated to treat tobacco use and dependence. WHO provides capacity building and training packages to help governments establish or strengthen their national tobacco cessation systems including integrating brief tobacco interventions into their primary care systems, developing national toll-free quit lines and mCessation projects.

Offering help to quit is also one of the five key interventions in the MPOWER package of technical measures and resources which WHO introduced in 2007.
