PEOPLE of Savusavu can enjoy a healthy business environment safe from the harms of second-hand smoking after the town was declared a smoke-free town on Friday last week.

Labasa Savusavu special administrator Vijay Chand welcomed the initiative saying the project was part of the "healthy cities and towns" initiative which was a global movement.

Mr Chand said the initiative engaged local governments in health development through a process of political commitment; institutional change, capacity building with partner based planning and innovative projects.

"More than 1000 cities have membership to the World Health Organisation's 'Healthy Cities and Towns' network and they are scattered right across the globe," he said.

World Health Organization regional director Doctor Shin Young Shoo and Minister for Health Doctor Neil Sharma officiated at the declaration function in Savusavu.
