World No Tobacco Day 2012 - March 31, 2012
Via World Health Organization (WHO): "Tobacco industry interference is the theme of this year’s World No Tobacco Day, which takes place on 31 May 2012. The campaign will focus on the need to expose and counter the tobacco industry's brazen and increasingly aggressive attempts to undermine global tobacco control efforts."See also WHO Tobacco industry monitoring database: "This database contains articles in English that is continuously populated through publicly available Internet resources, mainly news outlets, wire services and news releases. It includes articles related to the tobacco industry and groups and individuals that operate to advance goals that benefit the tobacco industry’s interests. Whenever possible, preference is given to the inclusion of articles that contain quotations from, or specific references to, tobacco industry representatives or tobacco industry representatives declining to comment. In some cases, analysis of the tobacco industry in a certain country or region is included, particularly for areas where direct quotations are not as easily found in the English-language publicly available sources."
