Proposals have been made requesting the raise of the tobacco tax in the Budget. Also, the campaign involves setting up region based anti-tobacco programs in order to spread awareness about smoking and its hazards.
The government and Galambila Aboriginal Medical Service and MNCDGP placed 57 officers in all of the 57 regions to help the people of different indigenous communities understand about the bad effects of smoking. They were involved in all the primary advertising techniques to attract people to attend the campaign. The children of the communities were gifted with various gifts so that their parents could be attracted towards the campaign and there were many people who attended the campaign because of this (Crane, 2010). Some t-shirts were distributed with the “Give up the Smokes” tag behind it to make the campaign more pleasurable for the indigenous people. The indigenous people were very happy to get the t-shirts and the gifts as their economic condition was not that good enough. The indigenous women were against smoking as they had to suffer a lot because of their husband’s death. So, the main focus was put on indigenous women as they promised to help us to make the campaign more effective. Various posters were placed on the walls in the rural areas which show the adverse effects of smoking (Stonehouse, 2011). Overall, the GUTS campaign is a very good effort by the government as well as the Galambila Aboriginal Medical Service and MNCDGP against smoking.
