Passive smoking brings negative impact for people who do not smoke.

Indonesian flag This is a collocation problem for Indonesians translating “..membawa dampak negatif untuk..”
In English the collocation is:

  • Passive smoking has a negative impact on people who do not smoke.

Note! s.th./s.o. has + an impact + on + s.th./s.o. 
Using the correct collocation will have a very positive impact on your IELTS score for vocabulary in both speaking and writing!
You can listen to a song featuring ‘impact’ here.
