ABSTRACT
The Health Professional Network for Anti-Tobacco Thai Society has selected Ubon Ratchathani University (UBU) to be one of fifteen universities enrolled into the program called “The Preparation of Being Part of Smoke Free". The president has entirely supported the policies throughout the project with the network members including, the health promoting hospital; Bua-Wat, the military-based hospital and the local population. The preparation activities included, 1. World No Tobacco Day, 2. The development of the innovations for smoking cessation including, cookies and jelly candies. Additionally, Pharsai Clinic team together with Bua-Wat health promoting hospital underwent the screening procedure, counseling, and cessation treatment for those who wanted to quit smoking. In term of university student activities, UBU required all new students (2015) to undergo the full screening tests including smoking history. CMP opened the course called “Addictive substances and tobacco related to health condition”. It aimed to help students gain more knowledge and information related to the tobacco industry and the dangers of tobacco products.The outcomes of the project were favorable. Ubon Ratchathani University still keeps on the same policies related to tobacco campaigns and continue to work towards being a Smoke-Free University. Funding Thai Government
