ASH Ireland is focused
on reducing the impact of tobacco use in Irish society. Just
under 7,000 Irish citizens die each year from the effects of
tobacco related disease – and ASH Ireland is determined
to reduce this staggering statistic. The organisation uses
its independence to focus on “the issue” and ensures
it is never compromised.
ASH Ireland will enter into partnership with other organisations
when this supports its objectives. It will not hesitate to
highlight, criticise and advocate on tobacco issues – when
this is warranted. If tobacco products were introduced on the
market today they would be banned by every country on the planet.
This motivates ASH Ireland and similar organisations to strive
towards a tobacco free society.
