Tackling Indigenous Smoking

The Tackling Indigenous Smoking (TIS) Program at Bega Garnbirringu Health Service (Bega) aims to improve the health of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people by reducing tobacco use. The Tobacco Action Team provide culturally appropriate smoking cessation activities to Aboriginal people in the Goldfields region that aim to:

  • Encourage community involvement in and support for local tobacco control activities
  • Increase community understanding of the dangers of smoking and links with chronic diseases
  • Promote benefits of quitting or never becoming a smoker
  • Discourage smoking among young people and pregnant women
  • Encourage and support smokers to quit
  • Raise awareness in communities about the health impacts of smoking and passive smoking
  • Support communities to establish smoke-free homes, workplaces and public spaces

The Tobacco Action Team encourage all community members to actively participate in program activities and community events. The team works very closely with schools, community centres, health services, youth centres, and sporting clubs. Do you want us to visit your community or services?
