Plain Packaging #2: The Case For It - Public Health

Plain packaging is the practice of restricting information placed on cigarette packets to health warnings and brand names with standardized fonts. Yesterday, Wan Saiful Wan Jan from the Institute of Democracy and Economic Affairs, better known as IDEAS, explained why it is a bad policy move as it infringes on intellectual property rights. Today we continue our discussion on plain packaging by looking at the public health argument with National Cancer Society of Malaysia’s President Dr. Saunthari Somasundaram.

Our first episode on this issue was "The Case Against Plain Packaging - Intellectual Property Rights", and we spoke to Wan Saiful Wan Jan of IDEAS about his views on the issue. Find the podcase of the other episode at http://bit.ly/299t4nu.
