In 2006, Cancer Institute NSW , Australia’s first government funded cancer control agency, funded the NSW Multicultural Health Communication Service (MHCS) and Quitline NSW to develop strategies to increase access of smokers who speak a language other than English to (delete access) smoking cessation services. The Multilingual Quitlines provide free, confidential and individually-tailored service telephone advice to assist smokers in the quitting process.
