Queensland Health implements a range of programs to prevent and reduce alcohol, tobacco and drug-related harm in the community, with a strong focus on tobacco smoking and risky alcohol consumption.
Prevention programs are targeted at the whole population, but also at certain population groups that may have a higher risk of experiencing drug-related harm.
Queensland Health delivers a multi-strategy tobacco control plan to help reduce smoking rates. This strategy includes activities to prevent young people from taking up smoking, reduce the public's exposure to environmental tobacco smoke, and encourage and support smokers to quit.
