Action Review: Third Quarter 2021


2020 ASH Annual Report Released


The year 2020 brought much-needed attention to social justice and placed the right to health front and center in global public health. In a matter of months, we saw the world come to a halt because of the global COVID-19 pandemic, a pandemic that has made it even clearer that the marketing and selling of a lethal and addictive product like cigarettes put not only individuals at risk but nations’ health systems too.  Furthermore, it has become increasingly clear that the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as the tobacco pandemic, disproportionately impact the most vulnerable members of society.

The ASH team and its allies around the world have been extremely active in 2020 to protect all of us from the harm caused by the tobacco industry. Because of social distancing restrictions imposed by the COVID-19 epidemic, we modified the way we work, but we did not skip a beat.

ASH news

Tobacco News

Tobacco products remain the #1 preventable cause of death both in the U.S. and worldwide.

The actions of the tobacco industry – selling a product that kills more than 8 million people every year and attacking governments all over the world when they try to pass life-saving legislation to reduce smoking – are an obstacle to social justice and our collective right to health.

With your help, ASH can remain extremely active in protecting all of us from the harm caused by the tobacco industry. We fight the tobacco industry on every front. It’s grueling work, but that’s the only way to end the tobacco epidemic.
