PANAMA CITY, PANAMA – The Taxpayers Protection Alliance will kick off its Good COP (Conference of the People) programming in Panama on February 5, 2024.

Good COP will feature nearly two dozen tobacco harm reduction experts, representing 11 different countries and highlighting some of the leading experts on consumer issues, national and global policies, and the science surrounding harm reduction.

Good COP is taking place from Monday, February 5 to Friday, February 10 in Panama City, several kilometers away from where global delegates are meeting at the WHO’s  COP (Conference of the Parties) 10. 

TPA and the Good COP participants will be monitoring the WHO’s meeting and providing running commentary via livestreams, media interviews, blogs and social media.

“TPA has long advocated for adult access to safer alternatives to cigarettes and has been alarmed by the prohibitionist-stance the WHO continues to push onto unsuspecting countries which would vastly benefit from adult access to alternative tobacco products including e-cigarettes, heated tobacco, and oral nicotine options,” said TPA president David Williams.

“In real time, our harm reduction experts will be fact-checking and providing commentary on the WHO’s anti-science agenda at COP10.  We value the opportunity to inform policymakers and the media about tobacco harm reduction, as well as calling out the WHO’s irresponsible public health messaging about tobacco harm reduction,” said Williams.

The event will be livestreamed on TPA’s YouTube channel.
