World No Tobacco Day By Medicare

Tobacco use in the UAE is reported to be as high as 24%, compared with the worldwide prevalence of 22.7%, and is most prevalent in men between the ages of 30-39. Medicare is raising awareness surrounding the dangers and harmful effects of tobacco use in all of its hospital. Representative will be at the #ivotefornosmoking kiosk to raise awareness and answer questions. The focus of World No Tobacco Day 2019 is on ‘tobacco and lung health’. The campaign will this year focus on raising awareness on the negative impact of tobacco use and second-hand exposure on lung health, from cancer to chronic respiratory disease. The campaign also serves as a call to action, advocating for effective policies to reduce tobacco consumption and engaging stakeholders across multiple sectors in the fight for tobacco control.

Medcare action is to reduce the unhealthy habit amongst its patients. The most effective way to improve lung health is to reduce tobacco use. Tobacco use can increase risk of lung cancer, chronic respiratory disease, and tuberculosis, and is a major contributor to air pollution. The event would take place on the 31 May, 2019
