World No Tobacco Day (WNTD) is marked around the world every year on 31 May. This year’s theme is “tobacco and lung health”.
The annual campaign is an opportunity to raise awareness on the harmful and deadly effects of tobacco use and second-hand smoke exposure, and to discourage the use of tobacco in any form.
The Bosnian Journal of Basic Medical Sciences (BJBMS) supports this global campaign highlighting the featured contents below.
