ETS and Children Project
Centre for Excellence in Indigenous Tobacco Control (CEITC)
'Car and home smoke free zone' is an environmental tobacco smoke (ETS) initiative targeting parents and carers of Aboriginal children 0-6 years. The program aim is to increase the number of parents and carers of children 0-6 years with smoke free cars and homes. The program seeks to increase awareness amongst parents and carers of the dangers of exposing children to ETS.
A poster and a brochure explaining the health risks of secondhand smoke have been produced. In addition, the program provided training to Aboriginal Health and Community Workers with the aim of increase their awareness of the dangers ETS poses to child health and their capacity to deliver and reinforce this message in their community.
