Event: World No Tobacco Day 2019

The European Network for Smoking and Tobacco Prevention (ENSP), the European Respiratory Society (ERS) and the Smoke Free Partnership (SFP) invite you to the celebration of World No Tobacco Day (WNTD) 2019, a high level event and award ceremony, jointly organized with the World Health Organization Regional Office for Europe on 11 June 2019 from 15:00-18:00. The session is supported by the European Cancer Leagues (ECL), the European Cancer Patient Coalition (ECPC) and the European Public Health Alliance (EPHA).


Discussions will focus on this year’s WNTD theme, Tobacco and lung health, aimed at raising awareness of the debilitating and deadly respiratory diseases caused by tobacco use. The event will bring the tobacco control and public health community together in a strong call for a renewed commitment from the European Union to step up its efforts to eliminate the tobacco epidemic, while honouring the efforts of the recipients of the 2019 WHO World No Tobacco Day award in Europe.
 
The event will be followed by a reception, starting after 17:00.
