FT Health Discusses Tobacco Taxes, World Mental Health Day

FT Health: World Bank says ‘go big, go fast’ to stub out tobacco
The latest issue of the Financial Times’ weekly global health newsletter discusses the World Bank’s recommendations for nations to use tobacco taxes to raise “costs as a disincentive to smokers while generating additional income from those who continue to smoke.” The newsletter also includes an interview with Poppy Jaman, CEO of Mental Health First Aid (MHFA) and the City Mental Health Alliance to mark World Mental Health Day, and features a roundup of other global health-related news stories (Jack/Dodd, 10/13).
