USAID has also assisted with the implementation and implementation of the study by providing a way of communicating the results which they have also monitored for impact.
The USAID study in the Philippines has been a success with positive changes brought about by their efforts. In 2007, it was reported that the population of smokers had dropped from 39% to 33%.
The number of men smoking dropped from 31% to 22%, and women from 10% to 7%. Only 38% of Filipino homes have a member that smokes compared to nearly 80% that had a member who smoked in the 1990s.
Over 200,000 signs have been erected throughout Manila and other areas of the country with anti-smoking messages and photos of people with severe health problems as a result of smoking. The campaign has also managed to reduce cigarette advertising down from 11,800 billboards in 2004 to zero in 2014 since the smoking ban was implemented.
Despite their efforts, however, it is reported that the Philippines still remains as one of the top 10 countries with the world’s highest smoking rates.
