Taipei City Initiates the Installation of Smoking Cessation

Department of Health, Taipei City Government, has set up 8 "Smoking Cessation Assistance Area" out of the non-smoking area around the Taipei City Hospital (Zhongxing, Renai, Heping Fuyou, Yangming, Zhongxiao, and Songde Branch) and Taipei Main Station. These areas are equipped with motion sensing ventilation and lighting system, electronic headcounter, as well as quit-smoking posters. It guides the smoking population to smoke within these designated areas, so as to not bring second-hand smoke to the general public. The posters would remind smokers to respect the general public regardless of being indoor or outdoor, which would eventually lead to a decrease in smoking population and provide a smoke-free environment.
