In their article, Greg Mills and Dickie Davis, surrounded by children in the village of Chikasauka 50 kilometres north of Lilongwe, Kamzawa, tells us that he would like to be selected for the Integrated Production System – known universally as the ‘IPS’ - to boost his tobacco farming.
 

WHO Urges Govt to Raise Tobacco Taxes

The World Health Organisation (WHO) says governments around the world should increase taxes on cigarettes and other tobacco products to save lives and generate funds for stronger health services.

In a report entitled ‘The Global Tobacco Epidemic 2015’, the United Nations health agency states that too few governments make full use of tobacco taxes to dissuade people from smoking or help them to cut down and quit.
It recommends that at least 75 percent of the price of a pack of cigarettes should be tax.
