Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH) is currently regarded as one of the most desirable countries for those who like tobacco. Tourist services come second to the constant consumption of tobacco products, so public places rarely have non-smoking areas.
The Klima Bez Dima initiative invites youth from across Bosnia and Herzegovina to submit creative multimedia content that tackles topics related to smoking in BiH and it impacts and/or promotes the benefits of a smoke-free environment.
In her book From Outrage to Courage, scholar Anne Firth Murray remarks: “Being born female is dangerous for your health. This reality may not be true for many readers, but for most women living in poor countries around the globe, it is devastating.”
Tobacco’s death toll continues to rise in BiH, while the tobacco industry remains insulated and the tobacco epidemic rages on with more than 2,000 children and 1,053,000 adults using tobacco on a daily basis.
