Advocacy Through Transparency, Collaboration & Action

Working together in the fight against tobacco

Our mission: to advocate for a tobacco and vape free Australia

Welcome to ACOSH

ACOSH Strategy

The Australian Council of Smoking and Health (ACOSH) is Australia’s leading tobacco control advocacy organisation with a proud 50-year history.

We are an independent non-government coalition of 33 prominent health, education, community, social service and research bodies from around Australia.

Our goal is to create a tobacco and vape free Australia. We do that by engaging with community and government leaders to achieve meaningful change via introducing or amending regulations and policies which will reduce smoking and vaping.

What We Do

ACOSH works through advocacy to reduce smoking and vaping rates in Australia. Through our advocacy work over the past 50 years, we’ve seen smoking rates decrease across the country. While these trends have been encouraging, the recent rapid uptake of electronic cigarettes, especially by our young people, means there is no room for complacency.

To achieve our goal of a tobacco and vape free Australia by 2030, we’ve identified key advocacy priorities which will ensure a strong and comprehensive approach to tobacco control.

Support Smoke-Free Areas

Grassroots advocacy harnesses the power of many voices to create the change we want to see in the world. The passion and action of Australian community members working together is how we will create a tobacco free future.

ACOSH provides support and platforms to amplify your voices to reach our political leaders and decisionmakers. We also let you know about smoke free projects and how you can get involved. Because your ideas, support and lived experience is a critical success factor in winning the fight against tobacco.
