Blog | Making tobacco less available is both necessary and feasible – New NZ study

In our recently published work, Estimating the effect of a potential policy to restrict tobacco retail availability in New Zealand, we studied the impact of the NZ Government preventing new retail outlets from selling tobacco from 2020, while allowing existing retail outlets to continue selling it until they closed or relocated. The estimated outcome would be a 50% decrease in the total number of tobacco retail outlets by 2032.

This Public Health Expert blog puts these results into the context of tobacco control options for NZ.
