Regarding this year's theme of World No Tobacco Day "Tobacco Breaks Hearts" to raise public awareness of tobacco addiction's impact on cardiovascular health, Ocampo said, "Heart ailments are the diseases that predominate among smokers".

"In the two years since the Royal College of Physicians found that "harm reduction has huge potential to prevent death and disability from tobacco use", we continue to largely ignore the fact that many smokers do not want to quit, but obtain pleasure from smoking". The other area of awareness is the feasible actions that governments and the public can take to reduce the risks to heart health posed by tobacco.

Of the over 7 million tobacco-related deaths annually, about 3 million are from heart diseases and stroke, and close to 900,000 are non-smokers dying from breathing second-hand smoke.

World Health Organization also declared that about 146,000 adults aged 30 years and above die every year from tobacco related diseases. PMI is publishing informational advertisements highlighting that people who smoke deserve the opportunity to learn about smoke-free alternatives to cigarettes.

The World No Tobacco Day is an annual occasion marked on the 31 of May.
