Koh Tao: Towards a smoke-free island?

Posted 16 nov. 2014 at 4:12 pm (vu 478327 fois)

Many organizations are campaigning so Koh Tao island becomes a non-smoking area, the ambition is to improve the tourist image of the island.

The Thai Health Promotion Foundation, the municipality of Koh Samui, and Action on Smoking and Health Foundation grow to Koh Tao Island an area without smoke and Koh Samui and Ko Pha Ngan.

Local leaders, the general public and the media have visited local communities and tourist attractions to distribute anti-smoking stickers to residents and merchants in the region. The campaign aims to improve the tourist image of the island.

In Thailand, there is the law on the protection of the health of a non-smoker who decreed that public spaces must be non-smoking in order to protect the health of non-smokers from the dangers of passive smoking. The Ministry of public health also announced additional non-smoking areas to protect the health of the public.

According to the Executive Secretary of Action on Smoking and Health Foundation, Prakit Vathesatogkit, about 50.710 people in Thailand have died each year of smoking in 2013-2014.

The campaign on the Islands should help to reduce the number of deaths due to smoking, said the Executive Secretary.

Her disappointment to return to koh tao to see such a disaster. Or whether you are during the day and sometimes at night you hear sounds of work, beaches privatize for the benefit of luxury resorts, some small restaurant typically thai are now burgers and pizza... I really hope that this will not last. Really too bad...
