The National Summit on Tobacco Smoking in Prison: Australian National University, Canberra, August 2010 - an Aboriginal Perspective

Aboriginal and Islander Health Worker Journal
Volume 35 Issue 3 (May/Jun 2011)

Abstract: With an alarming 85% of prisoners being tobacco smokers, it was timely that the National Drug Research Institute at Curtin University, supported by the Public Health Association of Australia and funded though the Department of Health and Ageing, organised a National Summit on Tobacco Smoking in Prison in August 2010 (Summit). The Summit engaged a number of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people including Dr Tom Calma and the Centre for Excellence in Indigenous Tobacco Control as well as other organisations working with tobacco control issues with prisoners. It was my role to help organise the Summit by assisting Clare Stevens the Project Officer.
