Social Media to Enhance Indigenous Tobacco Control

 

Overview

This Menzies School of Health Research led project aims to understand how social media can be harnessed to enhance the impact of tobacco control strategies among Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians. Smoking causes 1/5 deaths of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. Many social media tobacco control campaigns exist, but there is minimal understanding of their effectiveness.

In three years, four studies will be conducted that are responses to the following research questions:

Working with a team of over 20 Indigenous community based peer researchers from Darwin, Nhulunbuy and Alice Springs this project will combine online data collection and analysis with interviews from both users and non-users of social media.
