Internationally, World Smokefree Day is known as World No Tobacco Day, and is celebrated annually on 31 May.
World Smokefree Day is celebrated and delivered at a local level in New Zealand with a theme being applied to current initiatives and priorities. Regional smokefree coalitions provide a collaborative approach and touchpoints for anyone wanting to get involved.
