  • Provide adequate resources for tobacco control programs.
  • Make concerted efforts among the government, civil society organizations, including NGOs, and the population at large to establish a common strategy with the aim of saving human lives.
  • Create necessary conditions for future generations to lead healthier more sustainable lives free from the harms of tobacco use.
  • Institutionally implement education, communication, training and public awareness programs on tobacco use hazards to cover the most disadvantaged groups of the population, particularly in rural areas.
