This study aims to assess the awareness on passive smoking among smokers’ villagers in Sg Pelek, Sepang, Selangor. A cross sectional study was done by using simple random sampling. Respondents that fulfill the inclusion & exclusion criteria were interviewed with validated questionnaires and data were analyze using SPSS. The prevalence of smoking was 13.9%. The awareness on passive smoking among smokers was 42.4% and 57.1% of them still smoke in front of others despite of having the awareness.
