New Zealand Youth Tobacco Monitor 2019
Action on Smoking and Health (ASH) and the Health Promotion Agency (HPA) will soon be inviting schools to participate in the 2019 New Zealand Youth Tobacco Monitor (NZYTM) involving the ASH Y10 Snapshot survey. The survey will be conducted in term 2.
Your school’s participation is vitally important for ensuring the data and trends give an accurate reflection of what is happening in youth smoking across New Zealand. Participating schools will receive their school’s smoking figures, including a comparison with the national trends across all participating schools throughout New Zealand. The data can help schools to monitor trends in smoking among their students and develop smokefree policies, processes, and initiatives for their school.
For more information about the overall project, please visit www.hpa.org.nz/what-we-do/nzytm, or contact the NZYTM Project Manager, Niveditha Gurram.
