STATEMENT ON MAY 31: WORLD NO TOBACCO DAY 2017

We recognize tobacco use as a leading cause of diseases like cancer which results in early death among young people. It harms not only our health but also our social relationships.

Tobacco consumption is a serious problem. It is a gateway to substance abuse which eventually ruins one’s life.

Increasing the price of tobacco products significantly helps in reducing the population of smokers.

We laud the administration’s commitment in improving the people’s quality of life by promoting healthy living through the President’s executive order on the nationwide tobacco ban.

We firmly believe that imposing a higher unitary tobacco tax will be of great help in achieving a smoke free Philippines. It will be a huge step forward in developing our thrust for Universal Health Care.

Tobacco use is a barrier to development that’s why we call on our respected legislators to be our champions and side with the President’s decision against tobacco. Let’s all unite in promoting health for all.

SAY NO TO TOBACCO!
