It is estimated that over 25 percent of children in Indonesia over the age of three have tried smoking, with over three percent of them smoking regularly. The lack of government regulation around advertising is blamed for the problem, with campaigns seen heavily at sporting events, music concerts. The Indonesian government previously passed a health bill in 2009 to address the issues, but it has not yet been implemented. (Photo by Ulet Ifansasti/Getty Images)
