Smoking awareness.

The Ministry of Health of the Government of Fuerteventura this week launched a new awareness campaign against smoking.

This new campaign will have several approaches. One the one hand, information and awareness efforts will be aimed at the general population, but also aimed at health workers themselves to explain the risks of smoking, and the existing regulations that prohibit smoking in public areas.

Also, posters have been published to raise awareness of the dangers of smoking, to identify areas that prohibit smoking, and programmes that help the residents of Fuerteventura to stop smoking, as well as a course specifically for workers at health centres across the island.

In addition, a network project of smoke-free health centres in Fuerteventura has been launched with the aim of integrating the centres across the island into a network of smoke-free health centres, which all aim to reduce the habit of smoking for local residents.
