Tobacco Use: A Development Challenge
▪ Tobacco use is the largest cause of preventable disease and death in the world, killing 7 million people per year (WHO 2017). ▪ Smokers are 2 to 4 times more likely to get coronary heart disease; 2 to 4 times more likely to experience a stroke; and about 25 times more likely to develop lung cancer (CDC 2014).
▪ Recent research has shown that smoking can kill up to 2/3 of those who consume tobacco products (Banks et al. 2015). ▪ On average, smokers lose a decade of their life compared to non-smokers (Jha et al. 2013).
Direct and Indirect Economic Costs of Tobacco Use
Evidence from the United States:
▪ Based on 2006–2010 data, it has been estimated that by 2010, 8.7% of annual health care spending could be attributed to cigarette smoking, amounting to as much as US$170 billion per year.
▪ An estimated 11.1% of inpatient healthcare spending; 10.4% of prescription spending; and 5.3% of medical spending on non-inpatient services (outpatient, physician and clinical services, and other professional services) were attributable to cigarette smoking.
▪ During 2000–2004, cigarette smoking and secondhand smoke exposure resulted annually in at least 443,000 premature deaths, 5.1 million years of productive life lost, and US$96.8 billion in productivity losses.
