Allen Carr’s Easyway is a key contributor in the World Health Organisation’s year-long global campaign called “Commit to Quit”, which aims to support at least 100 million people as they try to quit tobacco.
The world’s most successful stop smoking method, which is available in 50 countries and has already helped more than 50 million smokers worldwide over its 35-year history, is one of a select number of partners to support the World Health Organisation (WHO) with their ambitious initiative for 2021.
Other partners offering support alongside Allen Carr’s Easyway include Amazon, Facebook, WhatsApp, Google, and Johnson & Johnson. Together with the campaign partners, WHO will provide people with the tools and resources they need to make a successful quit attempt.
WHO released a scientific brief earlier this year showing that smokers are at higher risk of developing severe disease and death from COVID-19. Tobacco is also a major risk factor for noncommunicable diseases like cardiovascular disease, cancer, respiratory disease, and diabetes. Moreover, people living with these conditions are more vulnerable to severe COVID-19.
