20% reduction in asthmatic admissions since smoking ban imposed

Dr. Fenton Ferguson, Jamaica&;s Minister of Health, has announced that there has been a 20 per cent reduction in asthmatic admissions to hospitals since the imposition of the no smoking policy in specified public spaces.

The regulations are part of the government’s 2013/14 strategic priority focus on human capital development in relation to health care.
