Every year, on 31 May, the World Health Organization (WHO) and global partners celebrate World No Tobacco Day. It is an opportunity to raise awareness on the harmful and deadly effects of tobacco use and second-hand smoke exposure, and to discourage the use of tobacco in any form. The focus of World No Tobacco Day 2019 is on “Tobacco and lung health”.
Every year on May 31st Harshamitra is very vigilantly engaging ourselves in creating public awareness on the “Ill effects of tobacco usage and its impact on health”.
This year we have gone a notch higher by kindling the flame of “DO NOT USE TOBACCO AND ITS RELATED PRODUCTS” to general public by conducting slogan contest for a week to general public on “I support Anti-Tobacco Campaign”
We had alarming numbers of mails hitting our inbox from various places of the country encompassing a wide age limit. We had numerous walk-ins aswell to drop their slogans against tobacco at our hospital premise. The best slogan is selected for Mr. Bharathiraja and is rewarded with a Gold Coin by Dr. B. Alli M.B.B.S, DGO., Medical Officer, Woraiyur Urban Primary Health Centre, Trichy.
We extend our sincere thanks to the City Corporation for supporting us in this campaign against tobacco. Let’s make Trichy a Tobacco free zone.
