Georgia is one of the countries with the highest smoking rates in the World Health Organization (WHO) European Region. The STEPS survey conducted in 2016 by the WHO demonstrated that 31% of adult Georgians (57% of men and 12.2% of women) use some kind of tobacco product. Tobacco consumption in Georgia causes 11,400 deaths annually, including at least 2,100 among non-smokers. This tobacco epidemic costs the country 2.43% of its GDP every year.
