Protect Our Next is a community-based initiative representing leading health and community NGOs.
We have been united in educating communities around the dangers of tobacco products for over five years. While the Tobacco Industry has been flooding communities with products that kill, we have been championing the health of our nation through schools and community education programmes and developing community ambassadors.

As the public hearings for the Tobacco Control Bill continue, we are encouraging local community participation at hearings to ensure that YOUR voices are heard!
Our community engagements and partnerships empower a better and healthier South Africa.  
Keep an eye on Facebook @protectournext for our community activations.
