Alternative reading list for #COP10 delegates 

The official FCTC COP10 documents are listed on the Tenth Session of the Conference of the Parties website.  COPWATCHERS will notice that tobacco harm reduction is absent from those official documents, with no consideration given to the opportunities offered by safer nicotine products.   Here we have compiled a list of articles to round off the COP10 delegates’ education.  Tweet to @FCTCcopwatch if you think we have missed anything out.
