dc.description.abstract This policy brief reports on a study where a sample of 432 smokers in Nigeria and 315 smokers in Senegal was analysed to better understand the relationship between the effect of increasing the price of cigarettes on quitting smoking. Results show that these factors and their effects may differ depending on the country in which they are implemented. For instance, in Senegal, substituting a cheaper brand was seen as an alternative to quitting. The World Health Organization has developed a framework convention to help countries implement a range of measures to reduce tobacco use. en
