Abstract

The focus of World No Tobacco Day 2019 was on “tobacco and lung health”. The campaign aimed to increase awareness on the negative impact that tobacco has on people’s lung health, from cancer to chronic respiratory disease, and on the fundamental role lungs play for the health and well-being of all people (1).
