Eurpoean Commission Publishes PHAI Collaboration on Tobacco Liability and the Health Costs of Smoking
February 15th, 2011
In December, 2009, PHAI, working under a contract to GHK along with Dr. Amandine Garde of Durham Law School (U.K.), produced a Report to the European Commission on the topic of tobacco liability and the health costs of smoking which has just been published by the Commission.
It is hoped that the Report will encourage the Commission to consider legal and regulatory means to recover the health care costs caused by tobacco products from their manufacturers. The fact that the Commission has published the Report can be interpreted as a positive sign.
