Harm reduction refers to interventions aimed at reducing the negative effects of health behaviours without necessarily extinguishing the problematic health behaviours entirely or permanently. This year, Kenya hosted the third harm reduction exchange at Radisson Blu in Nairobi on Thursday, with the focus centre being on tobacco harm reduction initiatives.
