Stickers with messages on the harmful effects of passive smoking on babies, pregnant women and young people below the age of 18 will be displayed in restaurants and cafes.

"The campaign aims to protect basic human rights, including the right to take informed decisions. A child has his right to healthy living like everyone, irrespective of whether he is in his mother's womb or out in this world," said Walid Abdul Malik, a director at the consumer protection division.
