(World's Tobacco Day-World's No Tobacco Day-Life Healthy Without Smoking and Tuberculosis)


Smoking and tuberculosis are cases that significant causes of death in the world. Based on the assessment we have done to the community, we obtained the lack of knowledge about the content of e-cigarettes followed by the dangers of e-cigarettes compared to conventional cigarettes, and the lack of knowledge on TB is about extrapulmonary TB and the treatment. Therefore, an approach is needed in the community to create awareness about the dangers of tobacco use, mainly smoking, and public understanding of the causes, symptoms, and prevention of TB disease. According to it, SCOPH CIMSA FK UNS held a LUNGS project (Live Healthy Without Smoking and Tuberculosis) on April 17th 25th  2021.

On April 17th, 2021, we conducted Pre-Activities Training by Caesariska Deswima and Annisa Nurul Azrina from Public Health Leader as a trainer with the topic "Smoking Cessation" and "Tuberculosis." CIMSA FK UNS members attended this training to prepare members who want to become facilitators for the Focus Group Discussion session on the webinar.
Furthermore, on April 18th-24th, 2021, we conducted an air campaign through Instagram by posting quizzes and educational videos based on the Pre-Activities Training, infographic posters, and games in the form of bingo.

In addition, we held a social experiment by conducting short interviews with the community regarding their knowledge of World Tuberculosis Day and World No Tobacco Day. Finally, we compile the interview results into a video, and we post it on @cimsauns Instagram account.

Moreover, for the last, on April 25th, 2021, we held a webinar on the topic related to tuberculosis and its correlation with smoking and the urgency of smoking cessation with Permata Imani Ima Sitonga from IMUT as a speaker and Joan Pamila as a moderator.
We hope that with this project, we can raise public awareness about the dangers of using tobacco, especially cigarettes, and promote the community's smoking cessation movement. Apart from tobacco which is the focus of our activities, we also focus on increasing public awareness about the prevalence of tuberculosis in Indonesia and how to prevent it.
