QUIT SMOKING SUPPORT

Smoking remains one of the major risk-factors to Koori health.

Smoking causes so many of the health problems in our community, and Australian Bureau of Statistics figures show about 45 percent of Aboriginal Australians are daily smokers – more than twice the rate in the general community.

We have a range of programs to tackle smoking and support people to reduce or quit. As well as counselling and medical support, we are working hard to change attitudes in our community.

One of our main aims is to develop networks to build community support for health promotion activities, smoking prevention and smoking cessation outcomes.

Our Quit Smoking anti-hero "Old Nico" is available for school visits and community events, and we have produced nationally-broadcast NITV television advertisements targetting smoking.


Helping young people choose not to smoke through our partnership with the Urban Institute of Indigenous Health and the Deadly Choices program and supporting people to give up smoking are key steps to improving health outcomes for Koori people.
