Brief description Over 60% of Indigenous children live in households with one or more regular smokers, where they are exposed to high levels of environmental tobacco smoke (ETS). ETS is a significant and preventable cause of respiratory illness. The aim of this research project is to test whether a family-based program about ETS smoke will reduce the number of clinic presentations of infants for respiratory illness. If successful, it has the potential to improve the health of Indigenous children across Australia.
