(GLOBALink) Thanks to the efforts of the partners working against the epidemic of tobacco in Pakistan, particularly those who raised their voices against the Designated Smoking Areas, the authorities have turned a Designated Smoking Area into a Mosque (Praying Area) for Women at Karachi airport. Congratulations to all and lets join hands to move on to fight for the implementation of smoke-free policies. Under the national tobacco control legislation, there is no room for any designated smoking area in the country.

Best regards,
