Aukati KaiPaipa - Smoking Cessation
Aukati KaiPaipa is a kanohi ki te kanohi (face-to-face) service that is delivered locally within most communities.
The quitting programme of the Aukati KaiPaipa service offers Māori and their whānau the opportunity to stop smoking through a range of activities and products which includes free nicotine patches, gum and/or lozenges (NRT), motivational counselling and ongoing support.
The goal is to reduce the smoking prevalence and consumption amongst Māori. The programme also aims to increase the positive attitudes towards supporting the smokefree kaupapa - such as smokefree environments, particularly for tamariki.
