Bishkek, May 28 / Kabar /. In Kyrgyzstan, the World No Tobacco Day will be held under the theme, "Stop the illegal tobacco trade." National coordinator of the Ministry of Health to combat smoking Chynara Bekbasarova said today at a press conference.
Each year, World NO Tobacco Day is marked on 31 May. Kyrgyzstan also celebrates this day. Every year a particular topic is chosen for this day. This year, we drew attention to the illicit trade in tobacco products. Illicit trade in tobacco is a serious global problem, in many ways, including health, legal and economic aspects of governance and corruption, said Bekbasarova.
The goal of the campaign in 2015 is to raise awareness about the danger to human health associated with the illicit trade in tobacco products. And especially for young people and groups with low income because of the greater availability and affordability of such products, she added.
