Turkmenistan has developed a national program to free the country from tobacco for 2022-2025, Trend reports citing Orient News.
The program was developed by Turkmenistan’s Health and Medical Industry Ministry, together with other relevant departments and international organizations.
The national program calls for the development of common national standards in the field of tobacco control, as well as the establishment of special control over policy implementation in the field of tobacco control.
