S’engager à arrêter de fumer pendant la pandémie de COVID-19

World Health Organization (WHO) published this video item, entitled “S’engager à arrêter de fumer pendant la pandémie de COVID-19” – below is their description.

La pandémie de COVID-19 a poussé des millions de consommateurs de tabac à dire qu’ils voulaient arrêter de fumer. Cette campagne s’appuiera sur des groupes d’anciens consommateurs pour apporter un soutien à au moins 100 millions de personnes qui s’efforcent de renoncer au tabac.

« S’engager à arrêter pendant la COVID-19 » contribuera à mettre en place des environnements plus sains et propices à l’abandon du tabac en préconisant des politiques fortes en la matière, en améliorant l’accès aux services de sevrage tabagique, en sensibilisant aux tactiques de l’industrie du tabac et en donnant aux consommateurs de tabac les moyens de réussir à arrêter de fumer au moyen d’initiatives « gagner à arrêter ».
