The CEO Roundtable on Cancer joined with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), the Ministry of Health of the People’s Republic of China (MOH), and nearly 60 leading enterprises operating in China to issue a joint statement establishing the China-United States Partnership on Smoke-Free Workplaces. The landmark public-private partnership links health and business leaders in an effort to reduce the negative health impacts of tobacco and secondhand smoke. The effort stems in part from the Ministry of Health’s recent “China Report on the Health Hazards of Smoking” which stated that more than one million deaths are caused by tobacco each year in China. The report followed the 2011 United Nations High Level Meeting on Non-Communicable Diseases which encouraged employers to establish more comprehensive tobacco-free workplace policies.
