Project Description

Children Learning About Second-hand Smoke (CLASS-II): A pilot cluster randomised control trial” is funded by Medical Research Council, United Kingdom (UK). It is a 24 months project that started from April, 2015.


This is a two arm pilot cluster randomized control trial. The project primarily aims to know the effectiveness of a school-based intervention, ‘Smoke Free Homes’ (SFH) in reducing exposure of school children to Second Hand Smoke (SHS). Its effect on frequency and severity of respiratory illness, healthcare contacts, school absenteeism, smoking uptake and their lung function, quality of life and school performance are also studied.
