Taking on the Toughest Fights: Tobacco Control in Africa

Wednesday, May 25, 2022, 9am EDT/1pm GMT

Committed tobacco control advocates throughout Africa are putting up a formidable fight for the implementation of strong laws to protect the next generation from tobacco harms. Despite the best efforts from the tobacco industry – which views Africa as a growth market for its deadly products – civil society groups are making a difference. Tobacco-Free Kids is proud to be supporting this progress.

Join us to hear directly from advocates and partners across the continent – with a special intergenerational conversation hosted by our Director for Africa Programs, Bintou Camara Bityeki.
