Reports linked to tobacco industry funding

In May 2017, Just Managing Consulting produced a report for the Africa Harm Reduction Alliance (AHRA). The AHRA is co-founded by Delon Human, a South African doctor with a history of collaborating with British American Tobacco (BAT) on tobacco harm reduction. The AHRA report – “Where there’s no smoke, is there still fire? Ethical aspects of Tobacco harm reduction” – argued for tobacco harm reduction and discusses the role of the tobacco industry in producing harm reduction products.3

In 2020, Just Managing Consulting produced a report for the FSFW, titled “Contradictions and Conflicts”, launched as part of the lead up to the Tobacco Transformation Index. The report outlined how state ownership of tobacco companies creates a “conflict of interest” with the WHO FCTC. The report advocated for tobacco harm reduction in partnership with state owned tobacco industries.2

Malan appeared on the FSFW podcast with Dereck Yach in September 20206 and was a keynote speaker at the Global Tobacco and Nicotine Forum 2020 in his capacity as an Assistant Professor at Trinity College Dublin.7
