Harm Reduction initiatives

Healthy Smiles, a locally registered & owned organization working on public health system initiatives, recently launched their website, www.healthy-smiles.org, at a recently held event in a private hotel in Karachi. The launch was attended by prominent members of the local and federal governments, foreign delegates, advocates, public health specialists, healthcare professionals, and media personnel.

After numerous campaigns on Oral Cancer Awareness and the deleterious effects of Tobacco use, Healthy Smiles is a breath of fresh air, focusing on public health strategies by decreasing the tobacco-related health burden in Pakistan through new initiatives related to Harm reduction & Smoking Cessation.

The Healthy Smiles spokesperson said that consistent and concerted efforts are required to create a nationwide narrative towards healthy behaviors through mobilization of civil and civic frameworks. All stakeholders, generally, are actively participating in creating 360-degree public health systems to benefit the general public and constant monitoring & evaluation can help us in identifying effective strategies for a significant impact.

Various attendees lauded the efforts of this organization in bringing about an initiative that will positively impact the lives of the general public.
