Tobacco kills more than 50,000 people annually in Thailand and costs the economy up to 0.78 percent of its GDP. On World No Tobacco Day, UNDP and WHO Thailand are releasing this joint policy brief which highlights how a continued focus on strengthening tobacco control will help accelerate Thailand’s effort towards achieving the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). It explores linkages between tobacco control and the SDGs, identifying issues and opportunities to deliver mutual benefits across the SDG agenda.
