Survey on tobacco and oral nicotine use in Kenya
CASA’s survey gives a voice to the silent victims in this debate - the general public, including many smokers who are desperate to kick their deadly habit. Nine out of 10 respondents in the survey say they have used traditional tobacco in some form, yet almost twothirds want to quit. Almost all think nicotine pouches or vapes/e-cigarettes will give them the best chance of doing so successfully
ORAL NICOTINE USERS BEHAVIOR STUDY REPORT
Oral nicotine pouches are seen as the safer and healthier route away from smoking and could be the key to quitting for good, according to new research. That is the finding of a survey conducted by IPSOS on behalf of Campaign for Safer Alternatives, to measure Kenyans’ attitudes to alternative nicotine products and assess the impact of the current suspension imposed on the sale of oral nicotine pouches.
Researchers interviewed 64 users of nicotine pouches aged between 18 and 44 years.
