Harm Reduction in Australia
Australia (HRA) is a national organisation for individuals across
Australia to join together in their commitment to reducing the health,
social and economic harms potentially associated with drug use. Making
your voice heard is crucial if we are to achieve more humane, effective
and balanced drug policies in Australia and beyond. To help join now
and show your support."
Harm Reduction Australia says...
"The International Harm
Reduction Association (IHRA) defines harm reduction as the ‘policies,
programmes and practices that aim to reduce the harms associated with
the use of psychoactive drugs in people unable or unwilling to stop.
The defining features are the focus on the prevention of harm, rather
than on the prevention of drug use itself, and the focus on people who
continue to use drugs."... "Harm reduction has been a principle of
Australian governments’ approach to drug use for several decades,
beginning in the 1980s when the first needle syringe program was first
introduced." (Source: Harm
