Event | Changing the tobacco supply landscape

Are you working towards Smokefree goals and want to see faster progress? Do you work with young people and want to see smoking uptake fall?

Addressing these questions means confronting a serious contradiction: we tell young people not to smoke and advise smokers to quit, yet we still allow tobacco to be sold in more than 6000 outlets. Come and learn how the Government could match its actions with its advice.

ASPIRE2025 is delighted to host this one-day course, held as part of the Public Health Summer School. Hear from leading tobacco control researchers including Professor Suzan Burton from Western Sydney University.

Changing the tobacco supply landscape
Date: Wednesday 15th February, 2017
Where: University of Otago campus in Newtown, Wellington.

What will it cover?

We will review retailer licensing in Australia, learning about novel research using diary-based studies, and examine findings from recent New Zealand studies. Specifically, you will learn about next steps that New Zealand could take and the evidence supporting these measures. We will also discuss how we might progress tobacco supply measures, and debate whether and how those measures might apply to e-cigarettes.

Who is it for?

The day will be particularly relevant to people involved in developing smokefree initiatives and policy. The course is designed to assist and support members of the smokefree community who work to support and maintain smokefree behaviour. It should be of interest to researchers, and those involved in social marketing and health promotion initiatives at national or community level. Policy makers would also benefit from the course content and networking opportunities.
