In 1994 the Aboriginal Social Justice Task Force report recognised youth smoking as an issue of concern. The Smoking and Health Program developed the Aboriginal Sport Star Swap Cards, capitalising on the swap card craze. The cards promoted a health message by using young, positive Aboriginal sports people as role models. The cards are proving an effective way of promoting better health among Aboriginal youth in Western Australia.
