Smoking prevention and treatment in Egypt

J Egypt Soc Parasitol. 2003 Dec;33(3 Suppl):1111-20.


The basic ingredients for a successful prevention program for Egypt are all present but to be successful, these efforts need to be maintained year round with additional resources for prevention and treatment made available to reach out to all regions and neighborhoods in Egypt. We need to expand our treatment capabilities by training primary care physicians to be more active in the area of smoking prevention and treatment.
