This study evaluated an anti-tobacco campaign targeting Vietnamese men in San Francisco, Calif.
The Intervention included Vietnamese-language media, heath education materials, and activitiers targeting physicians, youth, and businesses.
Evaluation involved pretest and posttest cross-sectional telephone surveys and multiple logistic regression analyses designed to identify variables associated with smoking and quitting.
At posttest, the odds of being a smoker were significantly lower (odds ratio [OR]=0.82,95% confidence interval [CI]+0.68,0.99% CI=1.27,2.15), in San Francisco than in a comparison community.
Despite modest success, further efforts are needed to reduce smoking among Vietnamese-American men.
