30 May 2013, ASH Thailand and other healthcare partners organized the WNTD 2013 activity to promote the campaign “Tobacco = Addictive Drug” to public. This was held at the Lifestyle Hall of Siam Paragon, Bangkok.
The event featured award-winning works of students with the theme: “Creative Media for Health Promotion” which mainly focused on tobacco control issues. The awarding ceremony for students was also held during this event. Together with the exhibit, ASH Thailand and partners set up booths to educate the public on how tobacco can harm their health.
In addition, many young actors also joined the activity as teen and youth representatives to promote the WNTD Theme this year: Ban Tobacco Advertising, Promotions and Sponsorship. (Ms. W. Kalyanamitra, SEATCA Industry Surveillance Program manager)
