A tobacco-free world by 2040?

A Lancet Series.

A tobacco-free world by 2040?The Lancet In it's edition of 14 March 2015 "The Lancet" launches a campaign for a tobacco-free world by 2040. The editors write: "Current global anti-tobacco strategies are failing. We endorse the Series' call for a UN high-level Summit on tobacco use to reinvigorate global and national efforts to achieve a tobacco-free world by 2040. The time has come for not only greater WHO leadership, but also leadership from the UN Secretary-General, because tobacco is not just a threat to health, it is also a threat to sustainable human development."
