Abstract:Tobacco was first introduced to Eritrea by the Portuguese in the 16th century and was further developed into an industry by the different colonizers. Studies into the use of tobacco products have been conducted by the Ministry of Health which has carried out three major surveys in 2004 and 2005. The current study, a tobacco use survey among students conducted in 2009, aims at covering a wider range of age than previous studies and at assessing the impact of Proclamation 143/2004 providing for tobacco control. The core objectives of the survey were to find out the prevalence of tobacco use, knowledge and attitude of students, the influence of media and advertising, access to and availability of tobacco products, and tobacco use prevention in the schools' curricula. The survey included junior, secondary and college students (age range 12 - 23 + years). Bibliogr., ref., sum. [Journal abstract, edited]
