  • Electronic Nicotine Delivery Systems (ENDS)

    ASPIRE Aotearoa researchers believe vaping products (ENDS) should be regulated to support realisation of the Smokefree 2025 goal, which aims to reduce smoking prevalence to minimal levels among all population groups in New Zealand. Regulation should also deter uptake of ENDS products among children, adolescents and non-smokers.
