  • NAIDOC Week 2018

    Cancer remains the second leading cause of death amongst Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. This NAIDOC Week, Cancer Council SA is urging Aboriginal people to take action and quit smoking to improve their own health outcomes. 

    Smoking continues to be a key concern amongst Aboriginal people, with those aged 15 and over 3.25 times more likely to smoke than non-Aboriginal Australians in the same age bracket.

    Cancer Council SA offers a number of programs specifically targeted to the Aboriginal Community to help them to quit the habit and improve their health outcomes:  

    •    Cancer Council SA employs an experienced Aboriginal Quitline counsellor to support Aboriginal people to quit smoking and stay with them throughout their quitting journey; 

    •    Our Quitline Aboriginal Liaison Officers are active in the community and over the course of many years, Quitline has partnered with a number of organisations to support local initiatives in regional and remote Aboriginal communities; 

    •    Our Quitskills program is one of the leading nationally recognised smoking cessation programs in the country, providing those in the health profession with the skills to support Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people to quit smoking. 

    To find out more about how we can help you to reduce your cancer risk, or support those in your community improve their health outcomes, visit www.cancersa.org.au/get-informed/atsi
