Comprometerse a dejar el tabaco

World Health Organization (WHO) published this video item, entitled “Comprometerse a dejar el tabaco” – below is their description.

La pandemia de COVID-19 ha llevado a millones de consumidores de tabaco a afirmar que desean dejarlo. La campaña ayudará al menos a 100 millones de personas en su esfuerzo por abandonar el tabaco a través de comunidades de personas que dejan de fumar.

La campaña «Comprométete a dejarlo durante la COVID-19» ayudará a crear entornos más saludables, que ayudan a dejar el tabaco, de varias maneras: abogando por enérgicas políticas de abandono del tabaco; incrementando el acceso a servicios de deshabituación tabáquica; dando mejor a conocer las tácticas de la industria tabacalera y facultando a los consumidores de tabaco para tener éxito en su tentativa de dejarlo por medio de iniciativas Quit & Win [déjalo y gana].
