Hosted during United Nations week in September, the second annual New Approaches conference investigates how policy, innovation, and technological progress can complement each other in preventing 1 billion tobacco-related deaths this century.
The 2023 healthcare conference evaluates progress achieved from policy frameworks such as the Framework Convention of Tobacco Control (FCTC) at its 20th anniversary. Can policy innovation overcome stagnation and accelerate an end to smoking in the years to come? The current state of progress in ending smoking in the USA and other countries will be presented.
Investments in innovation and sustainability can help meet the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), in particular SDG 3 on health, SGD 6 on clean water, SDG 12 on responsible consumption, and SGD 13 on climate change. The conference will investigate how modern nicotine delivery systems
, medicinally licensed Electronic Nicotine Delivery Systems (ENDS)
, pharmaceutical Nicotine Replacement Therapies (NRTs), and tobacco-free nicotine solutions, can work synergistically to improve the lives of millions.
By integrating perspectives from research, innovation, government, and new voices, this conference considers how novel technologies can be an integral part of tobacco control and a policy option to improve human health and a sustainable future.
New Approaches is an independent global forum on science and policy held annually during UNGA week in New York City. As a neutral convener, New Approaches hosts programming created by co-chairs and speakers. Views and statements by speakers are their own and diverse views are encouraged. The Summit is open to all stakeholders committed to working together to end smoking.
