30th October, 2020

We are pleased to announce that there will be a tobacco harm reduction workshop and training stream running on the 30th of October 2020 at the Gelian Hotel in Machakos county, Kenya. Media and health experts based in Kenya, will be successfully oriented into the concept of tobacco harm reduction through the workshop.

The workshop is a discussion and networking platform designated to facilitate exchange of ideas among
health practitioners, policy makers, academics, consumers, advocates and media from across the country. 

The theme for this year’s event is: Safer Alternatives: A gateway to a smoke-free Kenya. 

The workshop is timely, we are hopeful that it will will spark a conversation on why Kenya has little to no available smoking cessation services, which beg the question; can the country be 100% smoke-free in our lifetime? As the rest of the world continues to reap the benefits of safer alternatives, most medical practitioners and policymakers in Kenya haven’t got the slightest idea of what the concept of tobacco harm reduction is.
