RAISING TOBACCO TAX IS ONE OF THE MOST EFFECTIVE MEASURE TO REDUCE TOBACCO UPTAKES

Research conducted by the World Health Organization (WHO) indicates that raising tobacco tax is one of the most effective measures to reduce tobacco prevalence, thereby repelling the burden of tobacco-related diseases.

In particular, a tax increase of 5,000 VND/cigarette pack could reduce up to 1.8 million smokers, saving nearly 1 million people whose lives are threatened by tobacco smokes.

An increase of

5000 vnd / pack of cigarette

could reduce up to

1800000 people who smoke
