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.
“Violent conflicts are social disasters which fundamentally change the trust relationships in a society. Trust is easy to lose, but takes a long time to rebuild.” - Kirsten Voigt Juhl, University of Stavanger -
According to a study conducted by the World Bank, more than one million adults and two thousand children aged 10 to 14 in Bosnia and Herzegovina are daily tobacco users. Not only does tobacco usage impact the users, but also creates issues such as exposing non-smokers to second-hand smoke, and experts warn that even brief exposure warrants risk.
