The theme for 2021 was Commit to Quit. Here’s how the wider tobacco control sector around the motu celebrated World Smokefree Day.

Puanga iwi challenge - Tui Ora

The aim of the Puanga iwi challenge was to find a way to get Maori to engage with us and hopefully sign up and complete our programme. We took the new year, new you campaign we started in 2021 and put a Maori spin on it, with it coming into the Maori new year. Making it a challenge between two local iwi definitely helped boost interest. We’ve managed to get 12 people signed up in 10 days which is really good!
