Is harm reduction always the answer?

Associate dean of academic affairs at the Texas A&M School of Public Health, Amy Fairchild wrote about the Summit on STAT, a news site dedicated to publishing articles about health, medicine, and scientific discovery.

“Two core questions will be central to the ongoing debate: Does harm reduction represent an appropriate strategy for confronting the threat posed by tobacco? If so, what evidence would justify such an approach?” said Fairchild. She added that even though in her opinion harm reduction does not always resolve problems, it lessens the risks from any given harmful behaviour, and it is “not necessarily inconsistent with the goal of total cessation or abstinence.”
