The Tobacco Control Bill is set to introduce measures that will better protect both smokers and non-smokers.
We hear from the experts on tobacco’s health impacts, and discuss what South Africa will look like once these measures are implemented.
As we continue to wait for the legislation to be passed, what rights do we have, and how can citizens, organisations and even cities start taking proactive measures to protect people from tobacco harm?
