24th March, 2021
We are pleased to announce that there will be having our second tobacco harm reduction workshop and training stream running on the 24th of March 2021 at the Garden 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. Unfortunately, due to the current pandemic, we will not be able to host as many participants as we would have wanted to have initially; this is due to the strict government regulations on social gatherings.
The workshop is timely, we are hopeful that it 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.
