Values and the continuum of harm reduction

09:55 - 10:15

Harm reduction and precaution have been ideas that sharply divided the tobacco control community. Yet the recent history is one of seeming unification around the idea of harm reduction. Despite increasing acceptance of Tobacco harm reduction at a policy and government level, proposals for how to reduce harm sometimes differ radically. For example, banning flavor or restricting sales to smokers at one end of the continuum, actively promoting e-cigarettes to smokers at the other. This session will explore the question of whether harm reduction and precaution continue to underpin, if less starkly, policy choices now often framed as the former
