This program of research is examining the impact of Australia's graphic health warnings on cigarette packs on adult smokers and on secondary school students.
A series of studies have been conducted or are underway, including an audit of the roll-out of warnings, a follow up study of effects on secondary school students, and a population-based study on the contribution of health warnings to reductions in adult smoking prevalence.
