High Smoking Prevalence
  • The greatest single predictor of whether or not a
    person uses tobacco is their socioeconomic status
    (SES)

Tobacco and Poverty

  • (World Health Organization)
  • Low SES populations targeted by tobacco industry
  • Income diverted away from basic necessities to
    support tobacco habit
  • Tobacco-related disease disproportionately
    affects the poor, thus contributing to the
    poverty of individuals and families
