Working towards a smoke free Bangladesh
43% of people in Bangladesh are smokers. 11 million chew their tobacco with disastrous consequences for health.
Aminul Islam Sujon has an uncle who died of lung cancer from a 25 year old smoking habit.
Aminul was only 17. Heart-broken and angry, he decided to go to war against tobacco.
Selected as Bangladesh's Global Cancer Ambassador by the American Cancer Society, he spoke to Jocelyne Sambira about his uncle and the anti-tobacco movement in his country.
