What a difference a year makes; the changing global picture of tobacco harm reduction

09:30 - 09:45

Tobacco harm reduction has been a controversial issue for tobacco control and public health, however the last twelve month have seen a sea change in some countries who are now considering the benefits of taking this approach.  This session will look at the changing global picture and also look at what the UK has done and how it has contributed to these changes, with a particular focus on countries who have or are proposing a more positive policy framework.  This session will also touch on developments in low and middle income countries where tobacco harm reduction is not currently a priority and consider how the right balance can be struck to meet the needs of different groups and keep options open for the future.
