Tobacco Harm Reduction
Burning Issue for Asia
Asia has the highest number of smokers (743 million) in the world and the highest number of SLT users (261 million). Over half of the smokers who die every year die in Asia. There is a huge disparity in the region between the number of people who smoke and the number of people who use vaping products. Yet Asia has been at the forefront of a number of tobacco harm reduction success stories.

The status quo keeps adult smokers smoking rather than switching to safer nicotine, favouring the tobacco industry.
