Newslines radio program promotes Indigenous quit smoking message

Newslines Radio is a weekly radio program produced by the Australian Government, which takes a look at Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander issues.

Its latest April (2012) episode focuses on the nationwide push to encourage Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders to stop smoking or to not take up smoking in the first place. The program's crew travelled to Alice Springs to interview locals on their views on smoking, as well as seeking the opinion of workers and experts in the field.

Tom Calma, head of the national Tackling Indigenous smoking measure, speaks on how a national network of regional tobacco coordinators and tobacco action workers are working with Indigenous communities around the country to get the message out. Regional tobacco coordinators and health workers also discuss how they are getting the message to quit smoking out in the community, and helping to promote health campaigns.

The program transcript and audio can be viewed and listened to on the Indigenous.gov.au website.
