WHO Lauds Punjab; Decides To Honor State For Sustained Campaign Against Tobacco Use

Punjab, located in the northwestern region of India, has done commendable campaigns against tobacco and the World Health Organization (WHO) announced that it had decided to honor Punjab for the work.

The award would be given on May 31, the day observed as 'World No Tobacco Day'. The WHO lauded the state's efforts for taking measures to curb the usage of tobacco in any form and launching a sustained campaign to educate the masses besides taking punitive measures to punish offenders, a statement said.


Punjab Health Minister Surjit Kumar Jayani said the state was the first to impose complete ban on sale of loose cigarettes.
