Aboriginal No Smoke Day at Cavanbah Hall, Coffs Harbour.

A RANGE of tobacco control programs tailor-made for Aboriginal people was launched this week in Coffs Harbour with full fanfare including a comedy act, live music and dancing from South Grafton’s Guja Marra Aboriginal youth dance group.

No Smokes North Coast aims to encourage young Aboriginal people not to start smoking; support Aboriginal smokers to give up and stay off the smokes and reduce the exposure of babies and children to parental smoking.

It is a joint project of the University of NSW Rural Clinical School and the Mid North Coast Division of General Practice.

It was revealed smoking affected one in two Aboriginal people in Australia and 60% of Aboriginal people on the North Coast.
