Tobacco control

Young people's awareness of 'Smokefree 2025' - 2014 - In Fact

22 May 2015

In March 2011, the New Zealand Government committed to a goal of New Zealand becoming smokefree by the year 2025, where less than 5% of the population smokes (The New Zealand Government, 2011). To regularly monitor public opinions about tobacco control and aid the development of appropriate health promotion strategies, the Health Promotion Agency’s (HPA’s) Youth Insights Survey (YIS) monitors Year 10 students’ behaviours, attitudes and knowledge on a range of tobacco-related topics, including the ‘Smokefree 2025’ goal.
