After discovering that a patient would like to quit, he/she is referred to Hope Clinic in which they are counselled and provided nicotine patches, gums, lozenges or nicotine spray as an alternative or as a nicotine replacement therapy.

To-date Hope clinic has seen about 42 patients with a total of 72% Indo Fiji patients willing to quit. The clinic hopes to assist more patients to combat the disease of smoking.
