Hon Tariana Turia to receive international tobacco control award

Smokefree Coalition media release, 20 January 2015

A nomination by the Smokefree Coalition for Associate Health Minister Hon Tariana Turia to receive a 2015 Luther L Terry Award has been accepted. Hon Ms Turia will be presented with the award in March 2015 in Abu Dhabi.

Named for the late United States Surgeon General Luther L Terry, whose groundbreaking work established the foundation for public health scrutiny of the dangers of tobacco use, the Awards honour outstanding leadership and accomplishment and signify that the recipients are among the very best in the world at what they do.

Hon Ms Turia's nomination was supported by both Pacific Heartbeat, Heart Foundation and Hapai Te Hauora.

Dr Stone said she made the nomination to acknowledge Hon Ms Turia's tremendous, tireless and courageous work in championing a smokefree New Zealand.

"In her time in Parliament Hon Ms Turia has introduced no less than five pieces of legislation that have achieved increases in excise tax, banned retail displays of tobacco products, reduced duty free allowances and introduced plain packaging.

"She has also promoted smokefree cars where children are present and set in place a NZ$20 million "Innovation Fund" for projects that will increase effective cessation among New Zealand's priority populations."
