An alliance of Tobacco Harm Reduction (THR) advocates in the Asia Pacific Region
^ To advocate for the rights of smokers and users of safer nicotine products (SNP) to have access and for public health officials and governments support and implement risk proportionate regulation in their countries.
^ To provide information and news on THR – what is it, why is it important and how individuals can get involved in the cause of reducing health harm from tobacco – through petitions, surveys and submissions.


Below is a constantly growing list of submissions prepared and delivered to various SE Asian governments who have banned or plan to ban Safer Nicotine Products (SNP) such as electronic cigarettes, nicotine e liquid, Heat Not Burn products and snus, whilst leaving combustible tobacco products legally available.


Our hope is to ensure our voice as THR advocates is heard loudly and very clearly.


These policy papers aim to address the issues that have arisen since the implementation of the ban(s), as well as to provide scientific evidence/references to address the concerns that were presented as justification for the ban.
