Our goal is to equip all healthcare practitioners with an evidence based Brief and Intensive model that they can incorporate into their routine practice to encourage and support patients/clients to quit smoking.


  • Provide a knowledge base on the health risks of tobacco use, benefits of quitting, resources to support tobacco quit attempt and the referral pathways to support services
  • Create a resource network and training model for tobacco cessation that can be advocated for scaling at the pan-India level
  • To build the capacity of state officials to advocate for the provision of evidence-based tobacco cessation interventions at state and district level


Our unique approach is the capacity of the healthcare physicians’ pan-India on the various tobacco cessation practices. We introduce a wholesome online training program for the physicians on tobacco cessation which will help them to support the tobacco users to quit. It will also act as a resource center to learn about the recent advances in tobacco cessation techniques.

Focus areas

We target the primary health care professionals across India. We focus on the idea of using brief and intensive intervention techniques, which have been found to be effective in promoting tobacco cessation.
