Reminder: Register Now for our July 8 event - Communicating About Tobacco Taxes During the COVID-19 Era
Dear Prevent20 supporter

While governments look to start planning their economic recovery it presents cancer organizations with an opportunity to raise the profile of tobacco taxes as a source of revenue. 

Wondering how to bring tobacco taxes up with your policy makers? Join us for our next Prevent20 Virtual Café this Wednesday, July 8 to discuss how to talk about increasing tobacco taxes amidst the COVID-19 context.

Tobacco taxes are “win win win” – higher tobacco prices discourage people from starting or continuing to use tobacco, they generate revenue for government and they help decrease the burden on health systems from tobacco-related disease.

The new Head of the Secretariat of the WHO FCTC, Dr. Adriana Blanco Marquizo, highlights: 

“Tobacco taxation increases sorely needed revenues for governments, avoids future health care costs, and eases the burden on health care systems. I, therefore, believe that now is the best time to think about increasing tobacco taxes.”
