Working towards a smoke-free Western Australia

Western Australia now has some of the toughest tobacco laws in the country after State Parliament recently passed amendments to The Tobacco Products Control Amendment Bill 2017.

Under the new laws, Western Australia will become the fist State in Australia to make it illegal for employees under the age of 18 to sell tobacco products in retail outlets.

Healthway is committed to helping West Australians become smoke-free, and will continue to work in partnership with local organisations to fund health promotion programs and campaigns in the community, as well as health promotion research to reduce smoking rates.
