Bloomberg global initiative to reduce tobacco use : report of the bloomb erg orientation workshop, Yogyakarta, Indonesia, 7-9 January 2008
AbstractSince 2007 the Bloomberg Global Initiative to Reduce Tobacco Use (BGI) is being implemented in the South-East Asia Region. Four countries from the Region - Bangladesh, India, Indonesia and Thailand - were selected as priority countries under the Initiative. In 2007 both human and financial support was provided to these countries to strengthen their capacity for tobacco control. The WHO South-East Asia Region was the first and only Region to have organized an orientation workshop for all BGI staff. The workshop was found to be useful for the implementation of the Initiative in the Region. It has also enhanced the knowledge and team spirit of the whole BGI team and provided a unique opportunity to discuss and share the challenges that the Initiative is facing in terms of coordination for effective implementation. The workshop provided the platform to discuss and decide on a common approach to take the Initiative to its logical fruition.
