What is World No Tobacco Day?
In 1989, the World Health Assembly created World No Tobacco Day (WNTD), May 31, to encourage smokers to give up smoking and to raise public awareness about the health impact of tobacco. Global themes for WNTD have included tobacco-free workplaces, the media and tobacco, and growing up without tobacco. WNTD is celebrated across the world with media campaigns and other activities.
