Tobacco usage and sale in Mongolia www.news.mn

In a study entitled the “spatial and economic proximity of cigarette sales to school children in Mongolia,” researchers found that pupils who were given less than USD2 a week of pocket money were twice as likely to be cigarette users. Additionally, of those who smoke, 37.5 percent smoked single cigarettes. When vendors were found near children’s schools, that number increased to 47.5 percent.​

On 25 October, 2012, the Parliament of Mongolia passed the amendments to the Law on Tobacco Control. The law also prohibits sales of cigarettes within 500 meters from schools and dormitories. It bans the sale of cigarettes to anyone under the age of 21. This amended law will be enforced starting from 1 March 2013.

In November 2019, a total of 17 Mongolian hospitals will open their doors to hundreds of local adults who will take part in the tobacco cessation program. The programme, funded by the Pfizer Foundation, will use a new medication called cytisine on 350 patients, while a control group of 350 will go through usual cessation care. The programme is free for patients and uses a medication that only costs USD20 compared to other pricier ‘quitting’ drugs that can run up to USD500.​
