Target 5: Reduce tobacco use
Together, we will work to achieve the following target by 2025:
A 30% relative reduction in prevalence of current tobacco use in persons aged 15+ years
Tobacco kills people prematurely. On average, tobacco users lose 15 years of life. Up to half of all tobacco users will die of tobacco related causes. Smoking contributes to 14% of all deaths from non-communicable diseases, including heart disease, cancer, diabetes and lung disease.
