Each health rights & tobacco control district network has formed Youth Watch Group at community/district level in order to sensitize the community people about the law, to monitor tobacco control activities at the district level. These groups contribute in making most of the district administrations tobacco free zone in their designated areas. They regularly watch & monitor whether their decisions have been properly implemented & if not they will report to the HRTC network for effective implementation.
These groups are also actively involved in awareness raising campaign of tobacco control. Hence, these Youth Watch Group has been contributing in preventive activities as well as making local government or local authority accountable to their decision. Each youth watch group have monitored the government health institutions in their respective districts & have discussed their monitored data in the district level workshop in front of DPHO, CDO, & other stakeholders.
