WHO is launching the Access Initiative for Quitting Tobacco, which aims to help the world's 1.3 billion tobacco users quit during the pandemic. This initiative will help people freely access the resources they need to quit tobacco, like nicotine replacement therapy and access to a digital health worker for advice.Smoking kills eight million people a year, but if users need more motivation to kick the habit, the pandemic provides the right incentive.
