Eligible smokers enrolled in new smoking cessation pilot programmes will be entitled to full subsidies for nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) to help quit the harmful habit.

These pilots will be implemented in public healthcare institutions such as hospitals, polyclinics and national specialty centres [...] The programme aims to reach out to about 10,000 smokers, and Singaporeans can benefit from intensive behavioural support, follow-up for up to a year and a three-month NRT.

About one in 10 people here smokes, and the habit is considered one of the biggest risk factors for poor health.
