This guidance aims to help people of South Asian origin who are living in England to stop using traditional South Asian varieties of smokeless tobacco. The phrase 'of South Asian origin' refers here to people with ancestral links to Bangladesh, India, Nepal, Pakistan or Sri Lanka.
The term 'smokeless tobacco', as it is used in this guidance, refers to 3 broad types of products:
Products, like ‘snus’ or similar oral snuff products are not included.
The guidance is for commissioners and providers of tobacco cessation services (including stop smoking services), health education and training services, health and wellbeing boards and health and social care practitioners.
It is also for all those with public health as part of their remit, in particular, the health of South Asian communities. The guidance may also be of interest to local authority elected members and members of the public.
