ABSTRACT:There is a huge cultural acceptance of different forms of tobacco in different states of India and different part of world. With this background we aim to study some best practices in the state of Himachal Pradesh in tobacco control. This is based upon the challenges in the state which will enhance cross cultural competencies among various states of India towards the global tobacco endgame. This sharing and replication of best practices leads to focused and tailor-made approach in targeting areas and region with shared and overlapping needs. The state of Himachal Pradesh is considered as role model for the effective implementation of tobacco control among various states of India. This achievement was well accomplished by the multistakeholder engagement and integration in tobacco control. The challenge now lies in maintaining, sustaining and scaling tobacco control efforts. Effective monitoring through compliance studies from time to time still remains the best and practical solution for global tobacco endgame.
