The World Health Organization (WHO) has launched a year-long global campaign called ‘Commit to Quit’, which they hope will support at least 100 million people who are trying to give up tobacco products. This campaign aims to create healthier environments that are conducive to quitting tobacco, including advocating stronger cessation policies and increasing access to cessation services.

The WHO, together with partner organisations, aim to create and build-up digital communities where people can find the social support they need to quit. The focus of the campaign will be on high-burden countries, where the majority of the world’s tobacco users live.
