The Global State of Tobacco Harm Reduction (GSTHR) is a free resource mapping the availability and use of safer nicotine products, regulatory responses to them, and the public health potential of tobacco harm reduction at the national, regional and global level.
The information is collated and analysed from a wide range of publicly available, independently published sources including national and international academic, business intelligence, regulatory and public data sources, and is informed and validated by key informants across the world.
The GSTHR is a project run by Knowledge∙Action∙Change (KAC), a company dedicated to the promotion of harm reduction to improve health, and produced with the help of a grant from the Foundation for a Smoke-Free World Inc., an independent, US nonprofit 501(c)(3) which, under US law, must operate independently of its donors. All materials and reports produced by KAC under the Global State of Tobacco Harm Reduction project are, under the terms of the grant agreement, editorially independent of the Foundation. The contents, selection and presentation of facts, as well as any opinions expressed herein are the sole responsibility of the authors and under no circumstances shall be regarded as reflecting the positions of the Foundation for a Smoke-Free World, Inc.
Also with the support of the Foundation for a Smoke-Free World, KAC runs the Tobacco Harm Reduction (THR) Scholarships programme for individuals already working in or planning a career in tobacco harm reduction.
