    Public Health Association supports Smokefree Aotearoa 2025 announcements by Associate Minister of Health, Dr Ayesha Verrall

    MEDIA RELEASE 19 April 2021

    The Public Health Association of New Zealand applauds the proposed raft of changes to tobacco smoking controls by Associate Minister of Health, Dr. Ayesha Verrall. The Smokefree Aotearoa 2025 Action Plan proposals, were released as part of a discussion document last Thursday 15th April, 2021. The proposals include sweeping cuts to tobacco retailers, the banning of tobacco sales to new smokers, limiting tobacco sales to specific R18 stores or pharmacies, the reduction of nicotine in products and a prohibition on filters in cigarettes. These are excellent proposals and are strongly supported by the PHANZ. “Around 4,500 people a year die because of tobaccoin New Zealand. This is carnage on an industrial scale, and affects Maori and Pasifika peoples disproportionately. We need to do everything that we can to protect our whanau and our whakapapa,” said Grant Berghan, Chief Executive Officer of the PHANZ.
