Our Eliminate Tobacco initiative fights tobacco complacency and recognises that more can be done to prevent young people from smoking. Ultimately, our goal is to eliminate tobacco consumption and harm for the next generation.
We support policy reform to current tobacco control regulations, working alongside health organisations, researchers and government. We believe in the introduction of preventative measures such as raising the legal purchasing age for cigarettes to 21 years, and the continued prohibition of e-cigarettes in Australia.
Collaborate Against Cancer continues to challenge the tobacco industry’s ability to sell cigarettes in Australia, considering the health, emotional, social and economic burdens they inflict on our communities.
Smoking remains the most preventable cause of death and disease in the world. One in eight cancer deaths in Australia can be attributed to smoking, and more than 15,000 Australians die from a smoking-related illness each year. The simplest approach to eliminating cancer is to prevent it in the first place by reducing the supply and demand for tobacco products.
Stop Smoking Before it Starts.
