Since 2014, the Global Forum on Nicotine (GFN) has been the only international conference to focus on how safer nicotine products like vapes, nicotine pouches, Swedish snus and heated tobacco can help people switch away from smoking, in an approach called tobacco harm reduction.

Each episode, Joanna's bulletin shares tobacco harm reduction updates from around the world alongside brief expert interviews. After the news, Joanna hands over to Brent Stafford, who hosts the in-depth GFN•TV/RegulatorWatch discussion segment with a variety of expert guests.
