The 17th World Conference on Tobacco or Health has been going on In Cape Town, South Africa (7-8 March, 2018). About 2000 delegates from 120 countries have been in attendance. Tobacco Control Policies and Tobacco epidemic burden are among the topics highly highlighted. The Tobacco Atlas sixth edition was also launched. The document among others highlights the burden of tobacco epidemic in Malawi. The Tobacco Atlas states that Tobacco harms the health, the treasury, and the spirit of Malawi and that every year; more than 5700 of its people are killed by tobacco-caused disease. Still, more than 5000 children (10-14 years old) and 707000 adults (15+ years old) continue to use tobacco each day. Complacency in the face of the tobacco epidemic insulates the tobacco industry in Malawi and ensures that tobacco's death toll will grow every year. This reporter Winnie Botha (WB) has been at the conference and caught up with the one of the top speakers at the function José Luis Castro (JLC), President and CEO of Vital Strategies (an organisation advocating for Tobacco Control in the world)
