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 to encourage quitting
- providing information and support to those wanting assistance to quit smoking through the Quitline telephone support service – phone 13 QUIT (13 7848)
- providing information and resources to the wider community so that they may help promote a smokefree lifestyle to all Tasmanians
Quit Tasmania is supported by the Department of Health, Tasmania.
