Union Minister of Health and Family Welfare of India- Dr. Anbumani Ramadoss and Dr. S.J. Habayeb - the WHO Representative to IndiaWorld No Tobacco Day is the only global event established to call attention to the impact of tobacco use on public health and reduce individual tobacco dependence. The purpose of World No Tobacco Day 2006 is to encourage countries and governments to work towards strict regulation of tobacco products, raise awareness on all the different forms of tobacco available under different disguises.

Cancer Patients Aid Association has continually followed the theme of World No Tobacco Day to spread awareness through the masses. Over the years CPAA's awareness and educational programs have reached over 3 million people in India alone. The organization also conducts free awareness lectures & ENT screening camps open to public in the last week of May every year to commemorate World No Tobacco Day. CPAA organised a multi-fold event on 17th September 2006 at Taj - Lands End, Bandra, Mumbai, to observe & celebrate World No Tobacco Day and to launch National Cancer Rose Day 2006.

The Chief Guest for the day was the honourable Union Minister of Health and Family Welfare - Dr. Anbumani Ramadoss and the guests of honour were Dr. S.J. Habayeb - the WHO Representative to India, the Joint Secretary of the Ministry of Health & Family Welfare - Mrs. Bhavani Thyagrajan, Ms. Vineet Gill the National Professional Officer (Tobacco Free Initiative) from World Health Organisation and Mr. Nitin Nadkarni - Chief Financial Officer of Sony Entertainment Television.

The event lick-started with a Fancy Dress Competition for children betweeen 8-14 years old on the theme ' Tobacco: deadly in any form or disguise'. With an over whelming response from over 250 schools, 40 children were short-listed to perform. Each child outshone the other with his powerful message pertinent to the theme. Our aim through this event was to make the children, parents and schools aware of the harm associated with any use of any tobacco product and of the realities on being exposed to these deadly tobacco products. 

The 2nd part of the program began with a street play by Sutradhar. This entertaining yet thought-provoking play particularly stressed on the evils of tobacco consumption and the unfortunate invasion of cancer into the life of a tobacco habituee, ultimately destroying the peace of his family. The young actors along-with Dr. Ramadoss and the  chairman of CPAA, Mr. Y. K. Sapru took a pledge to accelerate their fight against all tobacco products.
