Tobacco Control Case Study: Ukraine

Despite a ban on smoking in public places, enforcement remains a problem in Ukraine. About 85,000 people die each year from smoking-related diseases, and over 14,000 non-smokers die from second-hand smoke.

Vital Strategies supported the first national smoke-free campaign, “Invisible Killer,” developed in cooperation with the National Public Health Center and the civil society advocacy organization, Life. The campaign aimed to increase compliance with smoke-free laws and stimulate the public to protect their right to smoke-free air.
