A prospective anti-smoking clinical trial was conducted as part of a coronary risk factor intervention study in three rural South African communities in the south-western Cape over a period of 4 years.
The aim of this part of the study was to reduce smoking rates in two of the communities through application of high- and low-intensity intervention.
The effect was evaluated by examining the net change in smoking habits, which was defined as the residual change in the intervention areas after allowing for change in the reference area.
This paper presents the analyses of the estimated effect of the programme on the cohort aged 15-64 years at baseline who participated in the two surveys (4087 subjects).
