Safeguarding the Health of Children and Families in Jordan
Safeguarding the health of families in Jordan is at the core of the cooperation agreement recently signed by Tobacco Free Jordan (TFJ) and Al Marji’ Publications.
“We are proud of our continuous collaboration with Al Marji’ Publications, which shares our vision of fighting the epidemic of tobacco use in Jordan,” said Faten Hanania-Haddad, TFJ President. Together, and through the articles in Family Flavours and Nakahat ‘Ailiyeh, “we are able to communicate awareness messages to the larger community, especially parents,” she noted at the signing of the agreement.

Founding member of TFJ, Zeina Shahzada-Majali, signed on behalf of the not-for-profit organisation, which aims to raise awareness about the harmful effects of smoking and second-hand smoke among children and youth. TFJ is lobbying for the enforcement of tobacco control legislations in Jordan.
This partnership encompasses expert-backed health articles in Jordan’s only parenting magazines, Family Flavours and Nakahat ‘Ailiyeh, produced by Al Marji’ Publications.
“We are strong supporters of Tobacco Free Jordan and staunch advocates of anti-smoking due to the harmful effects of cigarettes and arghileh on the health and wellbeing of men, women and children,” said Hind-Lara Mango, Publisher and Managing Director.
Manager-in-Charge of Family Flavours Laura Haddad signed on behalf of Al Marji’ Publications and added, “This is also a national priority, as the problems related with smoking have an economic, environmental and social impact.”
Articles this year will focus on the link between smoking and an increased risk of breast cancer and diabetes. Readers will also find inspiration in success stories of ex-smokers and benefit from practical guides to smoke-free family environments in Jordan.
