Tackling Indigenous Smoking Programme

 

Overview

Tackling Indigenous Smoking (TIS) is a national programme that aims to reduce smoking as the most preventable cause of ill health for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. A redesigned programme has been introduced in 2015–2016 with an emphasis on flexible approaches for regional tobacco control.

The programme includes:

New intensive tobacco control approaches will be trialled through a number of pilot projects in communities with very high rates of smoking. An Evaluation and monitoring framework will facilitate assessment of programme progress against performance indicators, and provide the basis for a full programme evaluation by 2018.

The TIS programme is managed by the Preventative Health Section within the Indigenous Health Division, Commonwealth Department of Health.
