VicHealth hosted an international Tobacco Harm Reduction Forum in Melbourne in July 2014. The two-day forum brought together national and international tobacco control experts to share their knowledge and experience about tobacco control, tobacco harm reduction and electronic nicotine delivery systems (ENDS).

The forum highlighted that there is a considerable level of consensus among the Australian tobacco control community about the potential of tobacco harm reduction within the Australian context, as well as a number of areas that require further discussion.
