Yarning It Up, Don't Smoke It Up

This program aims to reduce tobacco related harm in the adult Aboriginal population across the Perth Metropolitan area. It is culturally appropriate and designed to increase the Aboriginal communities knowledge of the harms related to smoking and the links to chronic disease. The program also works to increase community member’s knowledge of culturally appropriate quit smoking services. It includes training for service providers and pre and post evaluation.
