What Is Tobacco Harm Reduction?
Tobacco Harm Reduction is a complimentary approach seeking to prevent or reduce the overall harm caused by smoking combustible tobacco products. We base our approach on the recognition that many people throughout the state continue to smoke combustible tobacco products despite the strongest efforts by our health agencies to prevent the continued use of these products. Tobacco Harm Reduction (THR) takes a unique approach at educating the public and users of smoked tobacco on ‘Switch and Quit’ methods of using reduced harm tobacco products. Keeping people who use smoked tobacco healthier while preventing irreparable damage caused by smoking is regarded as our top priority.
