Indian Health Ministry Bags US Award for Health Promotion and Tobacco Control

The American Cancer Society has selected Indian ministry of health and family welfare for the coveted Luther L. Terry Awards for its "unrelenting stance on health promotion and tobacco control"//.

Minister of Health and Family Welfare Anbumani Ramadoss will receive the award at a ceremony during the World Conference on Tobacco in Washington DC Friday, a ministry statement said.

The award has been conferred on the ministry for the progressive enthusiasm it showed since 1990 in enacting national tobacco control legislation and for unwavering leadership provided by the Indian delegation at the Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (FCTC), said the statement.

According to the website of the American Cancer Society, the ministry "is a model to which other nations may aspire".

"The ministry has demonstrated its unrelenting stance on health promotion and tobacco control through its support of a comprehensive national tobacco control policy and an effective FCTC.

"The ministry's vision for tobacco control extends beyond legislation, however, and its programmatic and financial support for non-governmental organisations engaged in tobacco control proves its commitment to, and innovation in, the tobacco control movement," adds the website.
