Op-ed | World-leading action plan on smoking will reduce harm
The Government’s Action Plan for a Smokefree Aotearoa is comprehensive, bold, and recognises the importance of improving the health of Māori and eliminating the unacceptable disparities in smoking in Aotearoa.
If the measures outlined in the action plan are implemented promptly and in full, they will create a realistic opportunity to achieve the Smokefree 2025 goal. This world-leading approach could save many lives.
