KIR/Community-based action against smoking in Chui, Kyrgyztan 2011-201

Description

The number of smokers has increased fast in Kyrgyzstan, as well as in other low- and middle income countries because the international tobacco industry focuses its marketing efforts to countries where the economic and political environments are weak and governmental regulations low. The project strives to reach better understanding among adults and children of the health hazards of active and passive smoking, to increase the number of smokers who make a quit attempt encouraged by the health care professionals, as well as changes in social norms among adolescents. This is done through activation of village health committees, primary health care, schools and mass media.
