Hubbly Bubbly- A Looming Public Health Threat in Botswana
The use of hubbly bubbly (also known as shisha) by young people in Botswana continues to rise due to the misconception that it is safer than other conventional tobacco products. The misconception is a result of the false advertising of the product as well as the ‘social status’ associated with smoking hubbly- it is often viewed as being ‘cool’ and up to date with the latest city trends.

Every year, on 31 May, the World Health Organization (WHO) and global partners celebrate World No Tobacco Day (WNTD). The annual campaign is an opportunity to raise awareness on the harmful and deadly effects of tobacco use and second-hand smoke exposure, and to discourage the use of tobacco in any form.
The focus of World No Tobacco Day 2019 is on "tobacco and lung health." The campaign will increase awareness on: the negative impact that tobacco has on people’s lung health, from cancer to chronic respiratory disease and the fundamental role lungs play for the health and well-being of all people. The campaign also serves as a call to action, advocating for effective policies to reduce tobacco consumption and engaging stakeholders across multiple sectors in the fight for tobacco control.Mabutsane Village, Southern District
