Tobacco or health, choose health World's 1st No Tobacco Day on 7th April 1988
The Member States of the World Health Organization created World No Tobacco Day in 1987 to draw global attention to the tobacco epidemic and the preventable death and disease it causes. In 1987, the World Health Assembly passed Resolution WHA40.38, calling for 7th April 1988 to be a "a world no-smoking day." In 1988, Resolution WHA42.19 was passed, calling for the celebration of World No Tobacco Day.
Cyprus issued this cover and the slogan to deliver the message "Tobacco or Health, Choose Health".
Thank you Merja for this cover with the important message.
