Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

To reduce tobacco use among adolescents.

METHODS:

Thirty schools in New Delhi, India, were randomly assigned to 3 conditions: school-based and family-based intervention, school-based intervention only, or control group. Students were in the seventh grade at pretest (N = 4,776). The smoking intervention included posters, booklets, classroom activities, debates, and a signature campaign. The family intervention involved home activities. The survey measured tobacco knowledge, attitudes, offers, use, and intentions.

RESULTS:

Intervention students were significantly less likely than controls to have been offered, received, experimented with, or have intentions to use tobacco.

CONCLUSION:

The project had a significant impact on tobacco use.
