Harm Reduction

What is harm reduction

Harm Reduction is an evidence-based approach designed to minimise the negative consequences associated with substance use, without necessarily requiring individuals to stop using substances. Recognising that abstinence may not be a feasible or immediate goal for everyone, Harm Reduction focuses on practical strategies and support systems to improve health, safety, and well-being. This approach includes measures such as providing clean needles, and distributing information on safer use practices. Harm Reduction empowers individuals to make positive changes at their own pace, respecting their autonomy and dignity while promoting overall community health.
