Vaping to stop smoking

The Health Promotion Agency (HPA) Te Hiringa Hauora is working with the Ministry of Health on preparing information for the public on vaping as a way to stop smoking. 

A campaign will be developed to encourage smokers to switch to vaping and will be supported by information for the wider public on the risks and benefits of vaping.

Vaping as a way to stop smoking is one element of New Zealand's comprehensive approach to tobacco control, and has the potential to contribute to achieving the Government's goal of a Smokefree Aotearoa 2025.
