    Article - En anglais

    Tobacco smoking is fast becoming a public health problem in Ghana and the youth are at a greater risk of becoming victims of it.

    A survey of nine secondary (high) schools in the Greater Accra Region of Ghana showed that 31.1% of students have smoked before and that 10.3% smoke cigarettes regularly.

    A significant number of those who had ever smoked (32.6%) came from high socio-economic homes as exemplified by the level of education of the father.

    Advertising appears to be a factor as to why students start to smoke.

    Most students (59.4%) appear to know smoking is injurious to health.
