dc.description.abstract An expert group together with project consultants prepared an observational checklist designed to monitor the smoking control policy in enclosed public places, including recreational facilities and hospitals, in greater Cairo. The complete sample of public places included: schools, hospitals, government buildings, public transportation, recreational places and shopping malls. Results show that barriers to effective smoking restrictions are: existence of only partial restrictions and not a complete ban; poor physical conditions and management of public places; inadequate education and motivation of staff and administration; a party responsible for enforcement. Policy will require a complete ban on smoking in healthcare and educational institutions. en
