YAGUE-OLMOS, C.  and  CABELLO-VAZQUEZ, M.I.. A smoking cessation program for prison inmates and personnel. Rev. esp. sanid. penit. [online]. 2008, vol.10, n.2, pp.57-64. ISSN 2013-6463.

The main aim of this initiative is to promote a culture change in the prison/tobacco conjunction by means of an intervention program that leads to reduction in the high levels of smoking amongst the prison population (70-80%) and prison personnel. We hope to demonstrate that it is possible in practice to successfully implant and extend tobacco cessations programs in prisons. This would mean an important step forward for the general health of prison inmates, who suffer from higher levels of tobacco addiction than the general population and prison staff, who for their part are forced to share a reduced and enclosed space with prisoners.

Keywords : Tobacco Addiction; Tobacco Cessations Programs.
