Don’t Deny Smokers Their Best Chance Of Dodging Diseases

World Lung Cancer Day on August 1 served as a stark reminder of the devastating impact that lung cancer has on millions of lives worldwide. It was a day to reinforce the global resolve to combat this formidable disease, but it also exposed a troubling paradox. Just as efforts were being made to raise awareness and find solutions to combat lung cancer, some misguided activists in Kenya were using the moment to advocate for tighter restrictions on nicotine products that offer smokers their best chance of avoiding the disease.


8.10% of the adult population are current smokers. There are approximately 2.6 million current smokers in Kenya 15.60% of men are current smokers but only 0.80% of women.
