ASH Says Current Policies Working to Make Smoke Free Target

Our decline in smoking in the past four years is extraordinary – equivalent to what took two decades to achieve. New Zealand has recently had some of the most dramatic decreases in smoking in the world, including for Māori and highly deprived groups.


10.90% of the adult population are current smokers. There are approximately 420,745 current smokers in New Zealand.
