Smokefree 2025 looks unlikely

From The Panel, 4:29 pm on 25 July 2018

Cigarette company Philip Morris offered "smoke-free" tobacco products to NHS staff to make the 70th birthday of the health service. The tongue-in-cheek bit has been slammed by officials, who have called it a "disgraceful PR stunt".

Meanwhile the discussion around Smokefree 2025 is continuing here. It's clear we won't meet that target but new anti-smoking initiatives will target Maori and Pasifika.

The Panelists discuss the issue.
