The global theme of World No Tobacco Day 2021 is Commit to Quit.
As we mark this annual milestone day, we hear from the National Department of Health, the World Health Organisation (WHO), civil society organisations, medical and nursing associations on what is being done to turn the tide on tobacco harm in South Africa. We will be crossing live to activities in the provinces. The programme includes the launch of an exciting new Tobacco Control dashboard, the first of its kind for Africa, that will put access to vital research and information at the fingertips of those who need it.
