The 17th World Conference on Tobacco or Health will be held in Cape Town in March 2018 with an economic impact of R42 million.

A study has shown that the use of tobacco accounts for at least 30 percent of all cancer deaths, causing 87 percent of lung cancer deaths in men and 70 percent of lung cancer deaths in women.

Head of Cape Town and Western Cape Convention Bureau Corne Koch said this conference will have a great impact on the continent.

Koch added that the particular conference is a world’s largest gathering of tobacco control focusing on the world and the target of more than 3000 delegates across a range of disciplines including medical, legal, governmental and economic sectors all involved in policy development for tobacco control that will attend this congress in 2018.
