Quit Tasmania is a program of Cancer Council Tasmania and has been leading efforts in tobacco control since 1995 through, prevention, support, research and advocacy programs.
Quit Tasmania's vision is a Tasmania free from tobacco and its harmful effects.
We aim to eliminate the harms of tobacco by preventing smoking uptake and supporting all Tasmanians who smoke to quit for good.
We accomplish this through collaboration, partnerships and evidence based practice.
Our main functions include; social marketing campaigns to inform people on the dangers of smoking and encourage quitting, while providing information and support to those wanting assistance to quit smoking through the Quitline telephone support service (13 QUIT).
We also provide information and resource material to the wider community so that they may help promote a smoke free lifestyle to all Tasmanians.
Quit Tasmania is funded by the Department of Health and Human Services.
