Public support for cigarette price increase in Indonesia

Background: The current tobacco control policies in Indonesia are known to be ineffective in reducing tobacco consumption. Therefore, increasing cigarette
prices is one of the effective instruments that should be supported by governments and society. This study aims to assess public support for cigarette price increases as well as to generate scientific evidence for the government and policymakers.

Conclusions: The increase in cigarette prices is supported by society at large, including active smokers. The government must consistently adjust cigarette
prices through an excise taxing and cigarette retail price mechanism. Governments, academicians, nongovernmental organisations and tobacco control activists should generate a unified understanding that increasing
cigarette prices will improve overall life quality.
