The Coalition of Asia Pacific Tobacco Harm Reduction Advocates (CAPHRA) is an unfunded, independent, grassroots coalition of consumer advocacy groups throughout Asia Pacific dedicated to defending the right to choose harm- and risk-reduced nicotine alternative products.
We are asking you to add your voice to join with the millions of concerned adults who are demanding that governments review their policies to enact fair, common-sense regulations on alternate forms of Tobacco Harm Reduction like e-liquid vaping, heated tobacco products and snus.
We are demanding that governments follow the science and create risk proportionate, public health centered legislation that will allow smokers to have all available options for nicotine replacement to switch off combustible tobacco.
We need to stop negligent governments from tacitly killing its own citizens by allowing the product that is proven to kill one of every two users to be available freely, whilst banning or severely limiting access to products that are at least 95% less harmful than combustible tobacco.
Regardless of whether you are a smoker, a vaper, or a non-smoker, the chances are that you have someone in your life who is at risk from continued smoking if safer alternatives are not accessible and regulated.
With over a billion smokers in every corner of the world and a mortality rate of 50%, cigarettes are the greatest ongoing pandemic the planet faces. Vaping and snus are proven to be 95% less harmful than smoking and we are asking for your support to make these safer alternatives legal, accessible and available to any and all who may need them to get away from combustible tobacco.
Thank you for your support.
