New "No To Tobacco" programme to target youths in mainstream school

New "No To Tobacco" programme to target youths in mainstream school

The Health Promotion Board (HPB) announced two initiatives on Saturday, which is World No Tobacco Day, to tackle smoking here. A new "No To Tobacco" education programme will be introduced to all mainstream schools by 2017. It will also improve infrastructure and accessibility for its smoking cessation programmes. By 2020, the number of smoking cessation touchpoints, which includes retail pharmacies and primary healthcare institutes, will increase four-fold from 150 to 600. This year, it aims to get 10,000 smokers to pledge to stop smoking. To encourage more people to take up the challenge, the HPB is expanding the outreach of its national tobacco control campaign by holding 60 roadshows from now to next January, three times more than last year.
