World No Tobacco Day: Slovenia’s commitment to the global 2025 smoking reduction targets

In 2015, WHO estimated that about 21% of Slovenia’s population smoked. If tobacco control efforts continue at the same intensity, WHO projects that in 2025 this will have fallen to around 18% of the population. These figures indicate that meeting the global 2025 noncommunicable disease target of a 30% relative reduction in prevalence of current tobacco use in people aged 15 years or more by 2025 is possible if action is taken now.
