How we’re making a difference
At Make Smoking History, we are deeply committed to reducing smoking-related death and illness, a key priority shared by Cancer Council WA. We actively collaborate with various non-governmental organisations to advocate for policy changes aimed at creating a healthier environment and minimising the harm caused by smoking and vaping.
Through meaningful partnerships, we work towards influencing policy reforms that can effectively combat the detrimental impact of smoking and vaping on the Western Australian community, with a specific emphasis on cancer prevention. Our goal is to raise awareness, educate the public, and drive meaningful change in smoking-related policies, ultimately reducing the burden of cancer caused by smoking.
