Awareness for schools

Salaseini Moceiwai
Friday, July 11, 2014

THE Health Ministry's Tobacco Control Enforcement Unit has taken the initiative to reach out to all primary schools around the country with their awareness programs.

Speaking to the officials of the Labasa Town Council during a tobacco control training session yesterday, unit manager Aminiasi Tavui said they were targeting primary schools to inform them about their areas of work and its legislations.

"We have already visited two schools in Suva and we will continue to reach out to the other schools," Mr Tavui said.

"The unit is targeting these students because they are still young and their minds are fresh. Teaching them at an early stage will help them with their decision-making when they grow older. At least with the awareness programs, they will have a brighter idea about the impacts of smoking and the penalties."
