According to an international jury of experts, the Danish app called XHALE from the Danish Cancer Society is among the world’s best health apps and has therefore been granted an award in the category “Health and Wellbeing” at this year’s World Summit Award.
World Summit Award is an international digital competition that presents awards to the most creative and interactive apps in several categories. XHALE was selected for the competition by the Danish Ministry of Culture, and along with approximately 400 apps from around the world XHALE was judged by an international jury.
XHALE helps keeping young people on track in their efforts to quit smoking by means of exercises, advice from experts, and motivating messages from Danish celebrities. The app offers handheld videos from celebrity ambassadors, and coaching videos from stop smoking counsellors. In 2016, nearly 17,000 people started their quit smoking plans using XHALE.
