Royal Health Awareness Society – Jordan
The law protects our health… put it out!
Jordan is facing a tobacco epidemic where more than 60% of males and 25% of youth aged 13-15 are using tobacco. Tobacco use is major cause of cardiovascular disease and other noncommunicable diseases and has been estimated to cause 1 in 4 deaths from CVD. To tackle this prevalent issue, RHAS partnered with WHO and Ministry of Health, and the prime ministry to implement a communications campaign to promote the public health law, under FCTC 2030 project to enhance tobacco control.
