Anti-tobacco ad march has City Hall backing

Municipal Hall led Red Cross youth, partnership organisations and local authorities on a “No Advertisement of Tobacco” campaign yesterday morning, stopping at shops that sell cigarettes in Phnom Penh’s Meanchey district. The goal of the campaign was to advise sales clerks to take down any exaggerated cigarette advertisements and make their cigarette stock less conspicuous. According to a 2011 World Health Organization report, nearly 10,000 people die each year from tobacco-related diseases in Cambodia. Mom Kong, director of the Cambodia Movement for Health, said that after the government sub-decree was launched in 2011, tobacco advertisements decreased but did not disappear.
