We were pleased to kick-off the MyFamily My Smoke project on Tuesday 9 and Wednesday 10 June. This is a collaboration between the University of Stirling, three Malaysian universities (Universiti Putra Malaysia, Universiti Malaysia Terengganu and International Islamic University of Malaysia) and three NGOs (MyWATCH, FOMCA and the Green Lung Association) to develop capacity in monitoring second-hand smoke in homes and deliver a smoke-free homes public awareness campaign.
The University of Stirling partners shared their experiences of using air quality monitoring to promote smoke-free homes, and discussed potential approaches to using this information in Malaysia with NGO partners.
This work is supported by a Newton Fund Impact Scheme grant, ID 534474856, under the Newton-Ungku Omar Fund partnership. The grant is funded by the UK Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy and MIGHT and delivered by the British Council.
