Departments of health and education join call for veto of Philippine vaping bill

The Department of Health (DOH) and medical groups in the Philippines have found an ally in the Department of Education (DepEd) after the latter backed the DOH’s appeal to president Rodrigo Duterte to veto the country’s vaping regulation bill, which is now up for his signature.

In a statement issued on 17th March 2022, the DepEd said: “As a government institution championing young Filipinos’ well-being, we are taking a stand against the so-called ‘anti-health’ vape bill, which will weaken existing law and the executive order against electronic nicotine delivery systems (ENDS) or electronic non-nicotine delivery systems (ENNDS) commonly known as e-cigarettes or ‘vapes’.”
