World No Tobacco Day

May 31 marks the World No Tobacco Day to intensify awareness about the dangers of smoking.

Department of Health will commemorate World NO Tobacco Day with a high-level virtual dialogue with scientists, civil society and the media hosted by the Minister of Health, Dr Zweli Mkhize.
