A set of 6 anti-smoking posters and 1 pamphlet titled "A warning from beyond"

The National Smoking Control Programme was launched by the Ministry of Health on 1 December 1986 with the aim of making Singapore a nation of non-smokers. The Programme was first conceived after seeing a rise in the number of smokers and smoking-related deaths in Singapore and a series of anti-smoking posters and publicity materials in different languages were printed to disseminate the message. This set of artefacts was part of the selection in the time capsule buried in 1990 by then DPM Ong Teng Cheong to celebrate Singapore’s 50th anniversary of independence in 2015.
