GFN is the only international conference to focus on the role of safer nicotine products that help people switch from smoking. The rapid development and use of safer nicotine products raises a number of challenging scientific questions about their safety, who uses them and why, and the impact on smoking. These products also raise issues for governments who seek to understand what kind of policy and regulation is appropriate.
The conference examines the rapidly developing science in relation to nicotine and its use, including policy and regulatory responses. The theme for GFN 2019 is “It’s time to talk about nicotine” and will examine how attitudes towards the use of nicotine are changing and at some of its more positive and potentially beneficial uses.
The unique inclusive nature of the GFN continues to provide a platform for exchange and debate of often-contentious issues. This is made possible by the commitment of all who attend it to do so with an open mind and to examine the evidence in making decisions and judgements. This is the basis of our claim that GFN is the only place where science and policy meet.
