VTV.vn - The World Health Organization has chosen "Tobacco: A threat to development" as the theme for this year's World No Tobacco Day.

As one of the countries with high smoking rates, Vietnam's Ministry of Health launched an Anti-Smoking week to promote awareness on this issue.

According to WHO, smoking prevents sustainable growth, threatens food security, gender equality, education, economic growth and harms the environment.

The anti-smoking week will see the participation of localities as well as governmental agencies across Vietnam, with multiple activities being held such as anti-smoking walks, bicycle parades, and performances, among others.
