WHO WE ARE:  

INNCO is a global non-profit consortium of volunteer member organizations in 35 countries.  We promote the rights and well-being of 98 million people worldwide who use safer nicotine in order to quit or reduce use of toxic forms of tobacco.

We envision a just society in which the use and regulation of safer nicotine is grounded in evidence, compassion and human rights; a world where safer nicotine’s many cognitive and health benefits (including, not least, smoking cessation) are recognized and embraced by the public, policy makers and the global health community.

 

The International Network of Nicotine Consumer Organisations (INNCO) was formed in 2016 to represent consumers of low-risk, alternative nicotine products and to promote Tobacco Harm Reduction (THR) on the global stage.

THR is a public health policy that respects individual autonomy, empowers consumers to make safer choices, and offers pragmatic solutions to combating use of high-risk forms of tobacco. It is an alternative to the ‘quit or die’ mindset prevalent among WHO FCTC and its member  governments who impose restrictive regulations and bans on risk-reduced nicotine products in pursuit of unrealistic tobacco elimination goals.

We are driven to make consumers an integral part of THR discussions worldwide by helping develop and strengthen member organisations of the INNCO community.
