The New Zealand Defence Force aims to be smoke-free by 2020
- The NZDF has a new mission, to stub out smoking at its camps and military bases.
NZDF Commander (CDR) Karen Ward says, "We need to be fit and healthy to do the job that we need to do that's the job we do both here in New Zealand and the job we do when we deploy offshore."
The Defence Force is one of the largest employers in New Zealand with over 14,500 personnel, 1350 of whom are Māori.
“Any organisation would do well to be encouraging this because this is not only a good decision for the defence force to have an initiative like this, it's actually a good thing for New Zealand.”
