  • Australians used the coronavirus lockdown to kick their smoking habits

ERA/FoEN and the Nigeria Tobacco Control Alliance, NTCA, said these on the occasion of the World No Tobacco Day 2020, celebrated on May 31.

Dr. Al Mulla said that HMC's Tobacco Control Center is participating in global events today, including participating in an online seminar organized by the World Health Organization and other global organizations working in the field of smoking cessation.

Dr. Al Mulla also called on the relevant authorities to effectively implement law No. 10 of 2016 to combat smoking in Qatar, which includes a number of sanctions created to protect young people from using tobacco products, such as prohibiting the sale of tobacco products to anyone under the age of 18 years old, as well as preventing the sale of tobacco products near schools and universities, and banning the sale of different smoking products such as sweika, medwakh, and e-cigarette.

Notwithstanding lobbying from vested groups, farmers' front groups and the tobacco industry, now is the time to properly implement the national tobacco control programme (NTCP), he said, adding that the NTCP was not running to its optimal capacity in some states.

According to the World Health Organisation's 2015 data, 17 per cent of young people between the ages of 15 and 24 smoke worldwide.

This year, the World Health Organisation's World No Tobacco Day campaign focuses on protecting children and youths from exploitation by the tobacco industry. COVID-19 is an infectious disease that primarily attacks the lungs. The tobacco industry only cares about the profit it makes from its products and not public health, " Leonce Sessou, ATCA's Executive Secretary, said in the statement.

About 60 per cent of Africans are below 24, and according to 2018 World Bank statistics, sub-Saharan Africa has a population of nearly 1.1 billion.

"With strict implementation of strong tobacco control measures hindering the tobacco business in some parts of the world, it is not surprising to note that Africa, with such a growing and very youthful population, and with a relatively low implementation rate of tobacco control measures, is potentially a fruitful market for the tobacco industry", Mr Sessou said. "Cigarettes are also widely retailed and sold in packs of less than 20 units, and flavoured tobacco products can easily be purchased by young people".

"World No Tobacco Day 2020 therefore requires us to be even more vigilant and not relent our efforts in frustrating tobacco industry interference activities. The challenges are enormous, but together as a community, we will surely triumph".
