Tobacco-Free areas  

     TongaHealth has funded the placement of over 2000 non-smoking signs in public places such as churches, markets, community halls, hospitals, restaurants, and bars throughout Tongatapu, Vava’u, Ha’apai, ‘Eua and the Niuas.
     Authorised officers monitor non-compliance by businesses and individuals and enforce fines according to the Tobacco Control Act 2000.


TongaHealth has supported the creation of Tobacco-Free areas throughout the Kingdom, including in bars, community halls, restaurants, and hospitals.  




Policy Advocacy 

     TongaHealth has worked closely with the Tobacco Control Sub-Committee and within the Blue Ribbon campaign to expand smoke-free places to include restaurants and bars.

     In addition, TongaHealth continues to advocate for legislative changes to increase taxes on tobacco within the Kingdom.
