ANTI TOBACCO ACTIVITIES of Rainbow Nari O Shishu Kallyan Foundation 1996
Globally, the use of tobacco is decline day by day for various health reasons, but we found in our country still it has been increasing. According to WHO Global Status report 60% of man and 15% of woman in Bangladesh are tobacco users of different types like cigarette, BIRI, Hukka and dried tobacco leafs. In the rural areas it is customary to entertain guests with Hukka. Recently with the expansion of knowledge about the harmful affects of tobacco, we have started programmes of awareness building and lobbying. Under this programme Rainbow plays a significant advocacy role in this respect.
