Embracing Harm Reduction – A Classical Liberal Approach to Public Health in Argentina

Javier Milei’s unexpected triumph in Argentina’s presidential run-off marks a paradigm shift in the country’s political landscape. His commitment to classical liberalism, with an emphasis on the fundamental rights of life, liberty, and property, opens up new possibilities for policy reforms that align with individual freedom and economic growth. One area that demands attention is tobacco control, where embracing harm reduction can not only improve public health, and subsequently public finances, but also demonstrate a pragmatic approach consistent with Milei’s vision for a more prosperous Argentina.
