This study looked at California Asian-language quitline use by Chinese, Vietnamese and Korean speaking smokers, and compared their use rates to those of Asians and Whites calling the English-language line. The study found that Asian smokers who spoke English were significantly less likely than English-speaking white smokers to call the quitline. Yet smokers speaking one of the three Asian languages were equally likely to call the quitline as White smokers. The authors conclude that state quitlines should consider adding Asian-language lines to help address disparities in access to cessation services.
