Reducing Aboriginal children's tobacco smoke exposure in the Pilbara

 

Overview

A research team led by Combined Universities Centre for Rural Health was awarded a five-year grant from Healthway to reduce risks from smoking in Port Hedland, a remote centre of Western Australia. The project builds on strong community knowledge, national and international experience and a theoretical framework to minimise the harm that environmental tobacco smoke can cause children.

Activities started in 2006 and have included a community survey, a series of posters, a Family Fun Day and community service announcements for a community radio station.
