About The Quit Group
Me mutu, hei oranga mo te whānau
The Quit Group is an incorporated charitable trust established in 1999. The Quit Group is committed to helping all New Zealanders quit smoking, with a particular focus on Māori, Pacific peoples and pregnant women.
From 1999 to 2015 The Quit Group, with funding from the Ministry of Health, operated the Quitline, offering a multi-faceted service to all New Zealanders who wanted to quit smoking.
In 2015, the operation of the Quitline service was contracted to Homecare Medical under the umbrella of the National Telehealth Service. Under this arrangement the Quit Group retains the rights to the Quitline brand.
