Call for tobacco endgame in Taiwan

| September 18, 2013

The Taiwan Medical Alliance for the Control of Tobacco has called on the government to follow the lead of the World Health Organization’s Tobacco Free Initiative and set an agenda gradually to end tobacco use, according to a story by Alison Hsiao for the Taipei Times.

Ending tobacco use was the theme of this year’s International Conference on Public Health Priorities in the 21st century, at which anti-tobacco activists suggested setting target dates for the reduction of tobacco use to less than 5 percent of the population.
