About Don’t Get Sucked In
What is the Don’t Get Sucked In website?
Don’t Get Sucked In is a website encouraging teens not to pick up vaping (or smoking) in the first place, by challenging them to do the research and think critically about vaping. The website is intended to publish and disseminate information and research about vaping products and their use. It sits within the wider body of work conducted by Asthma and Respiratory Foundation NZ to reduce the appeal of vaping (and smoking) to children and young people and promote healthy lungs. The material that is on this website is all evidence based and reviewed by our Vaping Educational Advisory Group made up of a wide array of experts including registered health practitioners.
About Asthma and Respiratory Foundation NZ
Asthma and Respiratory Foundation NZ is New Zealand’s not-for-profit sector authority on all respiratory conditions including asthma, bronchiectasis, childhood bronchiolitis, childhood pneumonia, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), lung cancer and obstructive sleep apnoea.
Our goal is to improve the respiratory health and best practice of New Zealanders through partnering, research, training and education. In addition to this, the Foundation aims to reduce deaths caused by respiratory disease, reduce hospital admissions caused by respiratory disease, reduce the frequency of asthma attacks, and reduce the inequality of care provided in our communities.
The Asthma and Respiratory Foundation NZ does not accept any funding from the tobacco industry, either directly or indirectly. The tobacco industry includes individual companies or related entities who manufacture, distribute, promote and sell tobacco or related products. It also includes “philanthropic” bodies funded by the tobacco industry, such as the Foundation for a Smoke-Free World (FSFW).
