Anti-cigarette drive for full implementation

Rainier Allan Ronda - The Philippine Star

MANILA, Philippines — The Department of Education said that their anti-cigarette campaign will be fully implemented in all schools nationwide by the opening of school year 2018-2019 this June.

The EskweLa BAN sa Sigarilyo, the DepEd’s tobacco control program to be waged in schools, aims to increase public awareness of the ban on smoking in schools as mandated by DepEd Order No. 48 issued in 2016 or the Policy and Guidelines on Comprehensive Tobacco Control, and to build the capacity of schools through their respective Child Protection Committees, to effectively take a stand against tobacco by implementing the strategies enumerated in the order.

As the school year 2017-2018 ends this month, DepEd is completing the pilot test of the three-year project in partnership with the Tobacco-Free Kids Action Fund.
