The Institute of Public Health in Ireland (IPH) is supporting World No Tobacco Day 2019.
The day aims to raise awareness of the negative impacts that tobacco has on health, the damage caused by second-hand smoke exposure, and to discourage the use of tobacco.
The campaign also aims to advocate for effective policies to reduce tobacco consumption and promote tobacco control. IPH supports the Departments of Health in the implementation of tobacco control policies across the island of Ireland and more broadly in the promotion of smoke-free spaces. A range of measures have been introduced in the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland to reduce the level of harm caused by tobacco. To learn more about these measures and the damage caused by tobacco, check out the below video produced by IPH to mark #WorldNoTobaccoDay
