Harm Reduction: an International Human Right


The latest Briefing Paper from the Global State of Tobacco Harm Reduction, titled: The Right to Health and the Right to Tobacco Harm Reduction, was launched during GFN22 in Poland.

The paper recommends that tobacco harm reduction should be promoted as a health rights issue by the advocacy organisations that represent nicotine users, and it argues a human rights approach could offer significant opportunities to challenge the bad laws and policies across the world that currently prohibit, or restrict access to, the safer nicotine products that underpin tobacco harm reduction.

Tobacco harm reduction is not only a potentially life-saving public health intervention for the world’s 1.1 billion smokers, but also supported by international human rights law, according to the latest publication launched last week by Knowledge·Action·Change (K·A·C).

Titled “The right to health and the right to tobacco harm reduction”, it is the sixth in a series of Briefing Papers produced by the UK-based public health agency as part of its Global State of Tobacco Harm Reduction project.
