Every year more than 4,800 of its people are killed by tobacco-caused disease, while more than 165,000 children and more than 1,254,000 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 Côte d'Ivoire's 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.
