Brief description Twice as many Indigenous Australians smoke as non-Indigenous. Smoking is a major cause of poor health amongst Indigenous adults and exposure of Indigenous children to second hand smoke is associated with childhood respiratory illness. The aim of this project is to find out which tobacco control programs work best to both reduce rates of smoking amongst Indigenous people and protect children from harmful second hand smoke.
