Tobacco use and second-hand smoke publicity are key causes of cardiovascular illnesses reminiscent of coronary heart assaults and stroke.

Since 2016, the Tobacco Consequences Prevention Fund under the Ministry of Health has assisted the operation of free hotlines supporting cigarette addicts at Bach Mai hospital in Hanoi and Gia Dinh People's Hospital in Ho Chi Minh City, while helping eight other health facilities run consultations for people who want to quit smoking.

Over half of all WHO Member States have reduced demand for tobacco, and nearly one in eight are likely to meet the 30% reduction target by 2025.

'This World No Tobacco Day, WHO is drawing attention to the fact tobacco doesn't just cause cancer, it quite literally breaks hearts'.
