Drug and Alcohol Services SA has produced a draft for public consultation of their new tobacco control strategy. South Australian tobacco control work is guided by several overarching documents that include obligations and strategies for further regulation of smoking in public areas and reducing the harms of second-hand smoke. The primary target within the South Australian tobacco control strategy 2011-2016 is to reduce the percentage of young cigarette smokers by 5.4% from 21.3% in 2009 to 15.9% in 2016. This extends South Australia's Strategic Plan Target 2.1 by two years and requires the same reduction of at least 1% per year starting from 2009.
