Abstract

The Review of tobacco use among Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples provides a comprehensive synthesis of key information on the use of tobacco among Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

The review provides the historical, social and cultural contexts; describes the extent of tobacco use in Australia; the health and social impacts in relation to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and communities; the burden of disease and mortality; and other factors relating to tobacco use. It also includes details of the related policies and strategies and programs addressing tobacco use.

The review has extensive appendices which include the search strategy used to find the relevant literature. This is the first review the Australian Indigenous HealthInfoNet has published which focuses specifically on tobacco use; which is a national priority in Australia.
