World No Tobacco Day is commemorated in countries all over the world on May 31st each year. In St. Vincent and the Grenadines, the SVG Medical Association and the Ministry of Health, Wellness and the Environment, in collaboration with the Pan American Health Organization, held an event in commemoration of that day. The activity took the form of a panel discussion and then an open forum on tobacco smoking and other products. This was the first collaborative effort of its kind and it acted as a sensitization with its main aim being to deliver information to the general public on the effects, consequences and responsibility of smoking, and to stimulate discussion among the audience.
