Consultation Response

Submission to the consultation on the Commission’s draft first report from David Abrams, Clive Bates, Ray Niaura and David Sweanor > Response to the consultation.

We stress a strengthened approach to tobacco control with a strong focus on smoking as the primary cause of the NCD burden. To that end, we recommend the international community adopts a strategy of embedding tobacco harm reduction in tobacco control efforts. We provide an overview of the main issues and relevant science and make four main recommendations for amendments and insertions in the text of the draft.
