WSLHD E-cigarette Action Plan 2023-2025

Despite being world leaders in tobacco control, the recent increase in e-cigarette use represents an emerging threat to public health in Australia. Although there is limited evidence of long-term harms caused by e-cigarettes, clear and swift action is required to prevent a whole new generation becoming addicted to nicotine and subject to other e-cigarette-related harms.

Amidst the rapidly changing policy and legislative landscape at both Commonwealth and state levels, Western Sydney Local Health District has remained steadfast in our commitment to providing high quality person-centred healthcare to our western Sydney community.

This Action Plan outlines our strategic approach to streamline efforts to combat the impact of e-cigarettes. The document identifies key action areas for the LHD to address e-cigarette use and it includes a plan to develop indicators to measure and monitor our efforts. The participation and forward-thinking of all staff that participated in the consultation process during the development of the Action Plan will undoubtedly strengthen the delivery and implementation of our key priorities.
