Subject: Invitation 3rd WATCH : World Assembly On Tobacco Counters Health
Date: Thu, 20 Nov 2003 01:16:36 +05-30
You will be happy to know that the 3rd WATCH-2004 is scheduled to be held >from 07th-11th March, 2004 at Hyatt Regency Hotel, New Delhi, India.
Major Sponsors of the 3rd Watch i.e. WHO, IASLC, WHF, INWAT, CASH ESMO and its major supporters from 85 countries as seen in the Center Spread are going to ensure that we have a very successful and satisfying meeting.
The theme of the conference will be to make an exhaustive evaluation of the tobacco induced problems especially at the following fronts:
Realizing the true burden: - Statistics from a country like England where health cost are a state responsibility show that Tobacco is the single most common cause of premature death. (120,000 out of 56.2 million Britons die every year due to tobacco related diseases).
Extrapolating these figures to work a global burden we have at hand a burden of 13 million tobacco-induced deaths instead of 4.9 million. Further accepting the fact that health status of more than 4.5 billion people is twice worse than that in the 1st World we are faced with an approximate burden of 25 million deaths a year, which we thought, would be true only in 2030.
Role of Awareness and Prevention: - Evidence is also emerging that educational levels and awareness does not play an effective role in curbing the use of tobacco. For example at the highest level of education in Japan 57 % males and 37 % females - school and college going student who are 18 yrs old- do smoke. Hence alternate tools to public education and increased awareness of the ill effects of tobacco must be developed for an effective tobacco prevention or cessation program.
Industrial Onslaught: -Tobacco cultivation yields maximal profits with limited layout. It is thus financially unviable for the industry to initiate any action that leads to a reduction in production or utilization of Tobacco especially when it is so easily possible to dump it from now relatively tobacco free 1st World to the 3rd World countries.
We welcome you and your colleagues to the 3rd WATCH-2004 to help plan effective strategies, which will lay the first and final foundation stones for heralding a tobacco free future for our progeny.
