Fresh, people-led approach for smokefree communities

Recently, some of our researchers worked closely with the team at Hāpai Te Hauora to look at how Auckland could work to reach the government’s goal of Smokefree 2025.


In looking into the demographics and location of those most impacted by this goal, we created a list of recommendations that we believed contained targeted, effective and results focused options. We gave this to Auckland Council and they have now announced their approach to create smoke free communities. It is so wonderful to see that the Council has picked up many of our recommendations and shaped them into policy that will help support Aucklanders that need it most as they transition away from nicotine.
