Message from WHO FCTC Secretariat for the #YTCLS22

For the Opening Session of the first ENSP Youth Tobacco Control Leadership School 2022, all young participants had the chance to hear motivational speeches from different high-level institutional representatives, including the President of ENSP, Polish Ministry of Health, WHO FCTC or University of Southern California.

The Head of the Secretariat of the WHO FCTC, Dr Adriana Blanco Marquizo, encourages the youth to take action right now, as they are one of the most important groups targetted by the tobacco industry:

“Decisions that have no impact in the real world have no meaning and we understand that this requires hard work from the parties, but also from networks of committed civil society organisations and individuals. Young people are more important to this than almost any other group. The reasons for that are clear: almost every tobacco addict begins to consume at a young age.”

In addition, she explains the importance of combining youth efforts, strengthening their networks, and making their voice even louder in the fight against tobacco.
