Project Quit Tobacco International is a pioneering attempt to develop culturally appropriate approaches to tobacco cessation within the health sectors of India and Indonesia. An overview of the formative research that contributed to intervention development is presented followed by a discussion of the research design adopted to evaluate the introduction of tobacco cessation in medical schools and clinics chosen for pilot testing. Four stages of research and implementation are described as a means of providing colleagues in developing countries with a prototype for future tobacco cessation research and training efforts.
