Every year more than 200 of its people are killed by tobacco-caused disease, while more than 4,000 children and more than 44,000 adults continue to use tobacco each day. Complacency in the face of the tobacco epidemic will ensure the tobacco industry continues to run roughshod over the lives of Comoros' citizens and ensure that tobacco's death toll will grow with each passing year. Tobacco control advocates must reach out to other communities to strengthen their efforts in this mortal fight.
3 men are being killed by tobacco every week
38,600 men still smoke cigarettes each day
5,400 women still smoke cigarettes each day
