Tonga Quitline

Tonga's new Quitline inundated with calls from smokers wanting to quit

The Quitline launched 31 May, 2016 provides free advice and support to smokers from Ministry of Health staff trained by Quit Victoria in Australia.

Quitline counsellor Tupou Tuilautla said "we have provided counselling to about 18 smokers every day since opening the lines on Wednesday morning. It's great to see so many people calling to get help to quit smoking for themselves and their families.  Even if people have tried to quit before and been unsuccessful, we can really help them to quit for good".
