The Tobacco Project

The project aimed to assess the effect of multi-component community-based tobacco interventions funded by small health promotion grants. These were delivered in conjunction with a range of evidence-based tobacco interventions by Aboriginal Project Officers, in three intervention communities, compared to three control communities. Only one intervention achieved a significant drop in tobacco consumption compared with its control community. However, the evaluation suggests that incentive funds for community tobacco interventions have the potential to reduce the harm resulting from tobacco.
