Every May 31st is World No Tobacco Day–a moment when advocates, public health practitioners, and leaders around the world come together to recognize the harms of smoking, tobacco products and the tobacco industry, and encourage people to quit for good.
This year, the World Health Organization (WHO) is also shining a light on global tobacco farming with the 2023 theme “Grow food, not tobacco.” WHO is encouraging governments to stop subsidizing tobacco as a crop and instead encourage farmers to switch to crops that could help address food insecurity and environmental degradation.
