Harm Awareness Association Malaysian Organisation of Vape Entity

What is Harm Reduction?
The guiding principle of Harm Reduction believes in opening up avenues to alternatives that can help prevent or eradicate harm-inducing habits or activities that are essentials in order to build a better and healthier Malaysia.

What is Tobacco Harm Reduction?
Tobacco harm reduction (THR) believes that reducing the levels of harm from tobacco use among smokers is the priority because eliminating exposure to nicotine is not always achievable. Thus, the main objective of THR is to help smokers switch to less harmful alternatives.

Fact 1:
Many of us know that smoking is harmful, but not all of us know that the BIGGEST problem with smoking and cigarettes is burning. The reason why burning is the BIGGEST problem is because by burning the cigarettes and tobacco, we will be creating and releasing the smoke that contains harmful chemicals that caused smoking-related diseases such as lung cancer. Therefore, burning and releasing the smoke is the BIGGEST problem.

Fact 2:
Many adults are still confused with the misconception that the culprit of smoking-related disease is nicotine.

Fact 3:
Many smokers are not informed that they do have an alternative and less harmful way of consuming nicotine such as risk-reducing alternatives like e-cigarettes and heated tobacco products.
