The Statistical, Economic and Social Research and Training Centre for Islamic Countries (SESRIC) and Department of Statistics and Demographic Studies (DISED) of the Republic of Djibouti signed a Memorandum of Agreement (MoA) to facilitate collaboration and cooperation between both institutions within the framework of the project titled “Integration of the ‘Tobacco Questions for Surveys (TQS)’ into the National Surveys in Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) Member States”.
The MoA was signed on 31 January 2017 by H.E. Amb. Musa Kulaklıkaya, Director General of SESRIC, and Mr. Idriss Ali Sultan, Director General of DISED of the Republic of Djibouti.
During the implementation period, DISED will integrate the TQS into Djibouti Household Survey of Social Indicators (EDAM-IS4), to harmonize and standardize the monitoring of key tobacco control indicators for evidence-based policy making and promote sustainability through frequent collection of the tobacco use data.
