WHO... for higher tobacco taxes to save more lives

27 May 2014 | GENEVA - On World No Tobacco Day (31 May), WHO calls on countries to raise taxes on tobacco to encourage users to stop and prevent other people from becoming addicted to tobacco. Based on 2012 data, WHO estimates that by increasing tobacco taxes by 50%, all countries would reduce the number of smokers by 49 million within the next 3 years and ultimately save 11 million lives.

Today, every 6 seconds someone dies from tobacco use. Tobacco kills up to half of its users. It also incurs considerable costs for families, businesses and governments. Treating tobacco-related diseases like cancer and heart disease is expensive. And as tobacco-related disease and death often strikes people in the prime of their working lives, productivity and incomes fall.

�Raising taxes on tobacco is the most effective way to reduce use and save lives,� says WHO Director-General Dr Margaret Chan. �Determined action on tobacco tax policy hits the industry where it hurts.�

Key Points......

  • The young and poor people benefit most

  • Good for economies too

  • Tobacco taxes are a core element of tobacco control



 

 

Australia shows the impact of plain packaging

On 4 August 2014 Australian officials announced that the nation�s daily smoking rate, among people aged 14 years and older, declined from 15.1% to 12.8% between 2010 and 2013. The drop in the smoking rate shows that the plain-packaging law enforced at the end of 2012 � as well as the 25% tax increase Australia instituted in 2010 � works. The Australian law requires tobacco products to be sold in drab packages with large graphic images of tobacco-related diseases and the brand name but without logos.
