Following the successful 2015 Kuala Lumpur Nicotine Addiction Conference (KLNAC) held at Aloft Hotel Kuala Lumpur, there was a need to continue this event with increasing knowledge, skills and attitudes towards assisting smokers to quit. Since 2015, there has not been any conference within our region similar to KLNAC.

The Nicotine Addiction Research group of University Malaya Centre of Addiction Sciences (NARCC) decided to lead in this area of smoking cessation. In the MPOWER strategies of the Framework Convention for Tobacco Control (FCTC), the ‘O’ of MPOWER is to offer smoking cessation. This area in tobacco control is often neglected by current tobacco control advocates stop smoking service provider. It has also been called the weakest link of the six strategies of MPOWER.

This conference builds on the symposiums and conference held in Kuala Lumpur in 2012, 2015 and in Kota Kinabalu in 2016. All symposiums and conference aimed at capacity building, networking and knowledge transfer not just within the medical fields, but it has extended to the area of information and technology as well as engineering.
