    WORLD NO TOBACCO DAY | 31-May-10

    The “World no Tobacco Day, 2010” was organized jointly by the Liaquat National Hospital (LNH) and Medical College and the Cancer Society at the LNH Convention Centre on the 31st May 2010. The international theme “Gender and Tobacco with special emphasis on marketing to women” was chosen by the World Health Organization.

    The event included a poster competition, a declamation contest and a short documentary film-making competition. The declamation speakers highlighted issues resulting from tobacco consumption by women which include early menstruation, increased number of still births, infant mortality, low birth rates, complications of pregnancy, cardiac diseases and other lethal conditions like cancer.

    “Women are tricked into smoking at a younger age with appealing tags such as slim, reduced body weight, low tar, low nicotine content etc” said the chief guest, Dr. Salman Faridi, Medical Director Liaquat National Medical Hospital, and Karachi. Dr. Amir Ali Shoro, Dean and Principal Liaquat National Medical College (LNMC) said that “there is no good associated with smoking. Those addicted to it should immediately halt smoking if they hadn’t done it already”.

    Students from nearly all medical colleges and universities in Karachi, students from other faculties in the city and some from different cities of Pakistan participated in the held competitions. Three hundred posters were submitted with Wajiha Khan of LNMC getting the first prize. Out of 40 contestants, Aimun from Sindh Medical College was adjudged the best participant in the declamation contest. All three prizes for the documentaries were won by the LNMC teams. The panel of judges comprised Prof Amir Ali Shoro, Dr. Naveen Faridi, Prof. Sirajudaula Syed, Ms. Shahnaz Siddiq, Dr. Nadia Ansari, Prof. Khursheed Hashmi and Dr. Sohail Akhter.

    Ms. Farazana Siddiq, president of the Cancer Society concluded “that the ‘No Tobacco Day’ activity will not only raise awareness about the ills and harmful affects of tobacco consumption but will also help in combating this menace at large”.
