SESRIC and Palestinian Central Bureau of Statistics (PCBS) signed a Memorandum of Agreement (MoA) to facilitate collaboration and cooperation between both institutions within the framework of the project titled “Integration of the Tobacco Questions for Surveys (TQS) into the National Surveys in Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) Member Countries”. The MoA was signed on 19 August 2021 by HE. Mr. Nebil DABUR, Director General of SESRIC, and HE. Dr. Ola AWAD, President of PCBS.
During the implementation period, PCBS will integrate the TQS into its National Smoking and Tobacco Consumption Survey with a view to harmonize and standardize the monitoring of key tobacco control indicators for evidence-based policy making and promote sustainability through frequent collection of the tobacco use data.
