Description

The Hāpai National Tobacco Control Advocacy Service facilitates engagement between a wide range of policy makers, decision makers/influencers that may include Parliamentary Committees, the Ministry of Health, District Health Boards, NGOs, Primary Health Organisations, corporate decision makers, Media, Stop Smoking Service Providers, Council, Māori and Pacific Providers, iwi, local and national businesses, research and academic institutions, territorial local authorities, Crown agencies and communities to progress Smokefree 2025.

Our Tobacco Control Advocacy service utilises relationships and key influencers to spur increased ownership, and a positive view of Smokefree 2025, it identifies, delivers and promotes effective public health and advocacy interventions that will create and strengthen smokefree policies. Our role is also to increase public and media understanding of what will get us to 2025.

The four key objectives of all Hāpai tobacco control advocacy activities are:

  1. To reduce smoking initiation
  2. To increase quitting
  3. To reduce the social, economic and health harms of tobacco
  4. To reduce inequalities
