Promoting healthy habits in Pedro Betancourt.

Raising awareness among the world’s population of the harmful effects of tobacco and implementing public policies that contribute to effectively reducing its consumption are the main maxims of World No Tobacco or No Smoking Day.

Celebrated every  May31st as part of the international campaign initiated by the World Health Organisation in 1987, on this day all kinds of activities are carried out to reduce smoking and the deaths caused by this harmful habit. Nilda Roldán Molina, head of the ProSalud department of the Hygiene and Epidemiology Unit in this municipality, commented to our radio station.


In view of the worrying increase in the number of people who die each year from smoking-related illnesses, Nadiesta Írsula Martí, director of the municipal unit, underlined the main consequences of this dangerous condition:


Tobacco consumption is the main preventable epidemic facing the health community. Let’s make this World No Smoking Day a starting point to learn about, promote and apply habits that enhance our well-being and, in particular, our health.
