Health Healing Network Burundi

Roger Ciza

The tobacco industry is targeting our young people and is one of the main development challenges for our countries. We must act before it’s too late - and the right time for action is now!

Through this initiative we expect to make schools smoke-free and establish more smoke-free environments. Pupils will be taught about the hazardous effects of tobacco use and protected against primary and secondhand smoke. Most importantly, they will be empowered to serve as Health Ambassadors within their communities where they will promote healthy behaviors among their peers.  

We aim to create a smoke-free generation in Burundi and help to achieve full implementation of the WHO Framework Convention on Tobacco Control and national public health regulations.
