Tobacco use is responsible for more than 5 million deaths per year globally.

This study will be the first to examine the cost-effectiveness of proactively offering successively more intensive cessation treatments to help smokers from the general population quit for the long term.

The study will build on earlier success using telephone recruitment to offer smokers Quitline telephone support. This approach has the potential to reduce smoking prevalence through coordinating continued support for smokers.
