A 2011 study concluded that “Mass media campaigns to promote quitting are important investments as part of
comprehensive tobacco control programmes to educate about the harms of smoking, set the agenda for
discussion, change smoking attitudes and beliefs, increase quitting intentions and quit attempts, and reduce
adult smoking prevalence. Jurisdictions should aim for high reach and consistent exposure over time with
preference towards negative health effects messages”
