The number of smokers who kicked the habit in the Emirates doubled in the space of two years, a UAE ministry said. The Ministry of Health and Prevention (MoHAP) revealed the amount of people ditching tobacco products rose 122 per cent from 2016 to 2018. Smoking cessation clinics in the Emirates recorded a 47 per cent increase in visitors in the same period. Dr Hussein Abdel-Rahman Al-Rand, an under-secretary at the ministry, said the UAE is determined to reduce tobacco use and highlight the stark consequences of lighting up for the next generation.
