Boorais & Smoke Don't Mix - Community Aboriginal Health

Victorian Aboriginal Health Service supporting the community to be smoke free

Boorais and smoke don’t mix is a campaign run by the Victorian Aboriginal Health Service and is dedicated to the health and wellbeing of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

Boorais (meaning babies or children) are influenced by those they love and the world around them. We can help them stay healthy for life by staying smoke free, together.

Help us create a smoke free community

We envision a community free from the harmful effects of smoking. We want our boorais to grow up strong and healthy, with the aim of being future leaders in their individual communities. Join our community to get support for your tackling smoking journey, find out about events and enter competitions to win deadly prizes.
