World No Tobacco Day | 世界無煙日

Public Health News from Undergraduate Alumni Association

【Public Health & Our Community】 

各位校友及友好:


世界衞生組織於1987年開始訂定每年5月31日為「世界無煙日」,以便引起全球對煙草流行及其致命影響的重視,強調與煙草使用有關的健康和其它風險,倡導制定可有效減少煙草消費的政策,並勸阻使用任何形式的煙草。


今年世界無煙日以「承諾戒煙」為主題,煙草使用不單是非傳染疾病如癌症和心血管疾病的風險因素,亦會增加2019冠狀病毒病重症及死亡的機會。校友會邀請各位持續關注吸煙對我們健康造成的影響,為提倡戒煙盡一分力。有關世界無煙日日,詳情可參見世界衞生組織專題網頁:https://www.who.int/zh/campaigns/world-no-tobacco-day


  祝

身體健康

Dear alumni and friends,


The World Health Organization (WHO) has annually commemorated World No Tobacco Day on 31st May since 1987 in order to raise public awareness on the tobacco epidemic and the health impact casted by tobacco use. WHO stresses on any health and other risks caused by tobacco use, advocates policies and implementations for effective reduction in tobacco purchase and discourages the consumption of tobacco in any forms.


The theme of World No Tobacco Day 2021 is “Commit to quit”. Tobacco use is not only a risk factor which leads to non-communicable diseases such as Cancers and Cardiovascular Diseases, but also increases the risk of contracting COVID-19, its complications and deaths. For the details of World No Tobacco Day, please refer to the campaign webpage of WHO: https://www.who.int/zh/campaigns/world-no-tobacco-day
