Van to travel state, boost de-addiction campaign
“This initiative is commendable. Now, people will not have to go to cessation centres, but the centre itself will be coming to them,” Ahir said. Doctors from Prince Aly Khan Hospital will be in the van as it travels across the city and rural areas. The doctors will also counsel people to quit nicotine. Follow-up screening sessions will be held twice a week for three months.
Devika Chadha, programme director, Salaam Bombay Foundation, said, “The cessation van will help those who want to choose life over tobacco,” Chadha said.
