Conference | Smokefree Oceania, October 2013, Auckland.

It was great to see so many at Smokefree Oceania last week.

A number of people requested to view again the excellent keynote speeches given by Heather Gifford and Richard Edwards so these can now be viewed by clicking on the titles below. Presentations from other ASPIRE2025 researchers have also now been added and can also be viewed below.

Keynote presentations:

Is sharing tobacco within the home really good manaakitanga??
Heather Gifford discusses the myriad reasons for the uptake of tobacco within the context of Māori households, moving beyond explanation to posing possible solutions. In particular deconstructing the notion of manaakitanga in relation to social supply.

Legislation and regulation: where to next, and how?
Richard presents some ideas about the priorities for tobacco control legislation and regulation in the Oceania region and thoughts about how their introduction and implementation can be facilitated.
