Collaboration with Universitas Gadjah Mada and Universiti Putra Malaysia.
The project will seek to co-develop an intervention suite that can be utilised at community level in different countries to: (i) educate health and allied-health professionals about the benefits of a smoke-free home; (ii) inform the local population about the harms of second-hand tobacco smoke through targeted campaigns at smokers, non-smokers and children, and engagement with local policymakers and community influencers; (iii) provide personalised information to families about the impact of smoking on their household air quality; (iv) encourage change in community social norms through a community incentive scheme; (v) enable individual behaviour change through advice and support; and (vi) establish mechanisms to measure and audit SFH compliance.
