International Quitline Institute
The International Quitline Institute (IQI) provides training and technical assistance for the development and improvement of tobacco quitlines in low- and middle-income countries with a high burden of tobacco use and related diseases. The IQI helps expand the reach and effectiveness of quitline smoking cessation services through educational programs and workshops for tobacco treatment counselors, health care professionals, and public health administrators around the world.
Housed within the University of Washington (UW) Department of Family Medicine, the IQI is a collaborative effort of the UW, Alere Health (formerly Free & Clear), the World Health Organization (WHO) Tobacco-Free Initiative (TFI), Pfizer Independent Grants for Learning & Change (IGLC), the UCSF Smoking Cessation Leadership Center (SCLC), the CDC Foundation, and other partners.
