Currently, Non-Communicable Diseases (NCDs) are the leading cause of death in all regions of the world and by 2020 it is expected that the highest increases in NCD-related mortality will be in Africa. It is against this backdrop that the ATN on the 29th November 2017, hosted a High-Level Panel Discussion  On Tobacco Control at Avani Hotel in Gaborone.

The Panel Discussion themed "Countering Non-Communicable Diseases Through Investments In Tobacco Control"was aimed at taking stock of tobacco control efforts in Botswana and to reaffirm commitment and synergies among partners to halt the escalating burden of Non-Communicable Diseases in Botswana.

The discussion attracted panelists from different sectors whom we deem as key stakeholders in the fight against tobacco.

The first panelist was Ms. Thato Sengwaketswe from the Ministry of Health and Wellness whose focus was on the burden of tobacco related diseases and its catalytic effect in escalating NCDs:

Dr. Lucky Odirile from the University of Botswana talked about the impacts of Smoking in Families and Relationship:

Mr. Moagi Gaborone from WHO Botswana addressed the WHO Frame Work Convention on Tobacco Control as a vital tool for fast tracking public health globally.

UNDP's Mr. William Bapati discussing tobacco as a barrier to the achievement of Sustainable Development Goals:

Representing the Media, was former Director for MISA Botswana, Mr. Buyani Zongwani who talked about the Role of the Media in Tobacco Control:

Mr. Moses Zulu from Humana People to People discussed the on going initiatives aimed at combating tobacco use in Botswana and necessary future interventions to tackle the growing burden of tobacco related diseases.

Youth Representative Tumie Modise highlighted perceptions of youth on tobacco use and desirable interventions and strategies.
