Tobacco control

Salaseini Moceiwai
Tuesday, July 15, 2014

THE Tobacco Control Unit plans to extend its awareness programs to primary schools in the North this year.

Unit manager Aminiasi Tavui said during a tobacco control training in Labasa that they were focusing on schools in the Suva corridor before stretching their wings to the other schools outside the city.

"We have already visited 20 schools, the recent initiative being two schools in Nasinu," he said.

"After Nasinu, we will reach out to the Nausori schools before making our way to the North. This is all part of our efforts to educate children on tobacco, its impacts and the legislation that governs such products."

Mr Tavui said teaching high school students would be too late because some of them might have started smoking.
