Organization:
American University of Armenia, School of Public Health

 The goal of this project is to design, implement and evaluate the first smoking cessation training program for health professionals in Armenia, a country in transition with high smoking rates. The proposed project will contribute to the overall mission of the RFP by mobilizing key players in health prevention and promotion to build the national capacity in smoking cessation training for health professionals.  This project is in line with the mission of the School of Public Health at the American University of Armenia “to have a significant impact on improving the health of the people of Armenia and the region through interdisciplinary training and development of health professionals to be leaders in public health, health services research and evaluation, and health care delivery and management”. While it is essential to educate medical students as future physicians, this proposal focuses on the  continuing education training on nicotine dependence treatment for practicing physicians.
