Operating under the slogan "No to Smoking, Yes to a Healthy Life," the mobile clinic aims to help individuals quit smoking and provide essential guidance on healthy nutrition.

The launch of the clinic, which came almost a week after World No-Tobacco Day, was made possible through a collaboration between the Health and Professional Supervision Department in the Greater Amman Municipality and the Parks Department.

Promoting a smoke-free lifestyle
World No-Tobacco Day, celebrated annually on May 31, serves as a platform for the World Health Organization and its global partners to raise awareness about the health risks associated with tobacco use.

The event advocates for effective policies that aim to reduce tobacco consumption and protect public health.

Tobacco use stands as the leading single preventable cause of death worldwide, claiming the lives of one out of every 10 adults.

World No Tobacco Day seeks to protect both current and future generations from the severe health consequences linked to smoking. In addition to preserving public health, the initiative aims to mitigate the social, environmental, and economic harms stemming from tobacco consumption and exposure to secondhand smoke.
