Mid-point review of the National Tobacco Strategy 2012-2018: final report

Health Policy Analysis, Don Heron Manik Jayawardena

Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned reportpeer-review


The Department of Health engaged Health Policy Analysis to undertake the policy component of the mid-point review of the National Tobacco Strategy 2012-2018 (NTS). The NTS was developed by the then Intergovernmental Committee on Drugs Standing Committee on Tobacco as a sub-strategy under the National Drug Strategy 2010-2015.

Part Seven of the National Tobacco Strategy 2012-2018 (NTS 2012-2018) notes that in order to assess whether Australia is on track to meet the COAG performance benchmark for tobacco, a mid-point review of progress would be undertaken.

The mid-point review of the NTS 2012-2018 included two components: a data analysis and a policy analysis. The policy analysis was undertaken by Health Policy Analysis Pty Ltd (HPA) who conducted a targeted consultation process with officers representing the Commonwealth and state and territory tobacco control policy areas, selected non-government organisations and several key tobacco control experts.
