This year’s World No Tobacco Day (WNTD) on 31 May 2010 focuses on the theme:
Gender and tobacco with an emphasis on marketing to women
The WHO is looking for nominees for this year’s WNTD, which focuses on women as a target of tobacco marketing.
“…Controlling the epidemic of tobacco among women is an important part of any comprehensive tobacco control strategy. World No Tobacco Day 2010 will be designed to draw particular attention to the harmful effects of tobacco marketing towards women and girls. It will also highlight the need for the nearly 170 Parties to the WHO Framework Convention on Tobacco Control to ban all tobacco advertising, promotion and sponsorship in accordance with their constitutions or constitutional principles.”
