Media statement: Passing of Esteemed Former NCAS Chairperson - Professor Harry Seftel
It is with deep sadness that the Board of the National Council Against Smoking (NCAS) notes the passing of Professor Harry Seftel.
Professor Seftel was instrumental in the establishment of NCAS and served as Chairperson of its Board from 1976 to 2016. His strong and insightful leadership helped sustain NCAS and lay the foundation for its successes in combatting the public health harms of tobacco use in South Africa.
We express our deepest condolences to the Prof Seftel’s family and loved ones.
