Jordan Featured as the Regional Pioneer in Enforcing Smoke-Free Business Environments
Hikma Pharmaceuticals, King Abdullah II Center for Excellence and King Hussein Cancer Center join efforts to realize smoke-free environments
In the ancillary business seminar of the World Congress of Cardiology held in April 2012 in Dubai, Jordan's leading pharmaceutical manufacturer, Hikma Pharmaceuticals, and King Abdullah II Center for Excellence represented Jordan along with King Hussein Cancer Center.
The event, co-organized by the World Heart Federation, Global Bridges and the Global Smokefree Partnership, brought together business leaders and government officials from the region to discuss strategies to reduce the burden of smoking on businesses and the value smoke-free environments bring to individuals and organizations.
The event marked the launch of the Arabic version of "Smoke-Free in a Box," a toolkit to guide organizations through developing, implementing and enforcing smoke-free environments.
