NSW Health Campaign – Do you know what you’re vaping?
Earlier this year, NSW Health launched a vaping campaign that was developed in consultation with young people, parents, creative partners, education partners and healthcare organisations.
According to HealthStats NSW, the current use of electronic cigarettes by 16-24 year olds increased from 4.5% in 2019-2020 to 11.1% in 2020-2021, and the proportion of 16-24 year olds who had ever used an electronic cigarette increased from 21.4% in 2019-2020 to 32.7% in 2020-2021. With this increase of vaping amongst young people, this campaign comes at a pertinent time.
The campaign and resources are underpinned by evidence. For more information about the evidence for the campaign and toolkit resources, head to the Vaping evidence summary on the NSW health website.
