Monitoring and evaluating Aboriginal tobacco control

 

Overview

This project was designed to increase knowledge about smoking and tobacco control activities in Indigenous Australians. The project ran from 2007 to 2009, and was funded by the Cooperative Research Centre for Aboriginal Health and the National Health and Medical Research Council.

The research project aimed to establish the feasibility of monitoring tobacco consumption trends in remote Indigenous towns, using store and takeaway sales of tobacco. This could enable timely policy responses to local changes in tobacco consumption, and facilitate the evaluation of the local impact of new tobacco control activities and policies.
