We are well aware of the danger posed by tobacco products in India. There are almost 267 million tobacco users in India with over 1 million deaths attributed to tobacco use annually. The Global Adult Tobacco Survey, undertaken by the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare (MoHFW), India (2016-17), shows that one in 10 deaths in India is due to tobacco use. India has been amongst the first countries to ratify the Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (WHO FCTC) in 2004, and has undertaken several domestic tobacco control initiatives. The country enacted compre­hensive tobacco control legislation, entitled, “The Cigarettes and Other Tobacco Products (Prohibition of Advertisement and Regulation of Trade and Commerce, Production, Supply and Distribution) Act, 2003” (COTPA), with the objective of protecting the public health of citizens and certain risk groups from tobacco use. It is very important that we review the current situation at regular intervals. In this context, this webinar is being organized. Various policy makers, bureaucrats, health sector experts, social workers/activists and media persons would benefit from this virtual event.
