Panaji: In a joint study conducted by Directorate of health services and Cipla Health, it has been revealed that nearly 40 percent of adults in Goa are regular users of some form of tobacco-based product.

Tobacco consumption in different forms starts at a young age either through peer-influence (12%) or peer-pressure (9%). There is a significant increase in the number of regular users of tobacco in Goa, the company said in a press statement issued today.

Cipla Health  has joined hands with the government to make Goa “tobacco free state”.

In its first phase, ‘Mission Tobacco Free Goa’ will be conducting targeted interventions in Bicholim taluka and the Colva beach area as pilots.
