Our position on vaping

The Ministry of Health and the Health Promotion Agency/Te Hiringa Hauora are supported by a number of other organisations in their position on vaping.

What we agree on

  • The best thing you can do for your health is be smokefree and vape free.
  • Vaping is not for children or young people.
  • Vaping can help some people quit smoking.
  • Vaping is not harmless but it is much less harmful than smoking.
  • Vaping is not for non-smokers.
