Cigna, a worldwide provider of health insurance and services, says they are “dedicated to helping the people we serve improve their health, well-being and sense of security.” If this is true, why are they co-sponsoring the upcoming Java Jazz Festival in Indonesia with a tobacco company? Actions speak louder than words!
More than three-quarters of Indonesian smokers started before the age of 19, the majority of which say they were exposed to tobacco industry advertising and brands as children. Tobacco use kills at least 200,000 Indonesians each year, and approximately 36 percent of the population smokes.
Let Cigna's CEO and President know that actions speak louder than words. You either care about the health and welfare of the people you serve or you don't.
