According to the WHO, 8.2 million people die each year from cancer, an estimated 13% of all deaths worldwide. New cancer cases are estimated to increase by 70% over the next two decades if we fail to act now.  Tobacco use is the single largest preventable cause of cancer in the world causing 22% of cancer deaths and around 70% of global lung cancer deaths. The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) adopted by our governments for 2030, have a clear target for 1/3 reduction of death-rates due to non-communicable diseases (NCDs).
