Why we started this campaign?

Tobacco is the single largest cause of preventable death globally. 100 million people died in 20th century and if this trend continues there will be upto 1 million deaths in 21st century. All most all tobacco users began to use it as teens. Research says that if you dont take it before the age of 26 you will seldom take it afterwards.

There are lots of reasons teens start taking tobacco, whatever the reason, once you start, you will soon discover a secret: Tobacco is an addiction and its really, really hard to stop. As a parent, whether you use it or not, your words and actions make significant differnce in your child's choice to remain tobacco free.

VISMA has started anti-tobacco campaign. Our focus will be on preventing youths from taking tobacco.
