World No Tobacco Day 2017 – “Smoke-free Support Station”


World Health Organization has designated “Tobacco – a threat to development” as the theme of World No Tobacco Day 2017 (31 May) with the aims to encourage the governments to step up tobacco control efforts and to motivate individuals to contribute to making a sustainable smoke-free world either by committing to never taking up tobacco products or by quitting the habit. COSH launched a publicity programme with the theme of “Smoke-free Support Station” in order to engage different sectors of the community in promoting a smoke-free lifestyle, as well as to mobilize the public to encourage their family members and friends to quit smoking and join the “Smoke-free Family”.

Kick-off event
COSH, in collaboration with Radio Television Hong Kong Radio 1, organized a kick-off event on 28 May 2017. Healthcare professionals, patients and artists joined hands to promote the benefits of smoke-free lifestyle through live music performances. The public were invited to participate in the activities of “Smoke-free Support Station”.



"Smoke-free Support Station"
To enhance public awareness on World No Tobacco Day, over 130 companies, non-government organizations, hospitals, smoking cessation service providers and schools supported and promoted the programme by setting up “Smoke-free Support Stations” across the territory during 28 May to 18 June 2017. Over 3,000 people joined the “Smoke-free Family” and wrote supportive messages to spread smoke-free culture to all walks of life. Please click here for the list of “Smoke-free Support Stations”.
