PC: Smoke Free UHMC Initiative.

The Hawaiʻi Department of Health, tobacco prevention advocates, and policymakers from across the state celebrate the 10-year anniversary today of Hawaiʻi’s landmark 2006 Clean Indoor Air Act.

The measure expanded smoke-free prohibitions in enclosed and partially enclosed areas statewide.

The event will also highlight Hawaii’s successes over the last decade, and unveil a new strategic plan for addressing current tobacco use in Hawaiʻi.

The celebration also commemorates the 41st annual Great American Smokeout, a national event that encourages smokers to make a plan to quit or to plan in advance and quit smoking on that day.
