'Children's charter' aims to create tobacco-free generation by 2034 – 31 de Marzo de 2015 – Escocia 

A "children's charter" to highlight the goal of creating a tobacco-free generation in Scotland within two decades is being launched by health campaigners on Wednesday.

The charity ASH Scotland said its document, the Charter for a Tobacco-free Generation, is aimed at organizations working directly or indirectly with young people and their families.

At its heart is an ambition for Scotland to achieve an adult smoking rate of 5% or less by 2034.

Organizations are being asked to sign up to the charter's six principles and to pledge to review their policy and practice to help protect children from the harms caused by smoking.

ASH Scotland chief executive Sheila Duffy said: "The Charter for a Tobacco-free Generation is a way of driving forward Scotland's compelling vision to free our children from the tobacco epidemic that has claimed so many lives and led to so much misery.
