On World No Tobacco Day, the Macedonian Public Health Institute (PHI) shared data showing that the percentage of active smokers in the country stands at 45.4 percent, with the percentage of people who had successfully quit smoking in recent years being 5 percent. According to the Institute, this ranks North Macedonia among the countries with the highest percentages of active smokers.

The 2024 World No Tobacco Day will provide a platform to young people worldwide who are urging governments to protect them from the predatory marketing tactics of the tobacco industry. The industry is focused on young people to ensure a lifetime of profit, creating a new wave of addiction. The use of electronic cigarette is higher among children than adults in all regions, added PHI.
