The 2018 National Harm Reduction Conference comes at a time when harm reduction, health care and drug policy reform have entered a dynamic and critical phase. The prescription opioid and heroin overdose epidemic has captured national attention, with renewed focus on transmission of HIV and viral hepatitis among people who inject drugs. These trends are reshaping the policy and public health landscapes, making harm reduction more urgent and relevant than ever before. We anticipate a significant increase in attendance at the upcoming conference as a result.

Sponsoring the National Harm Reduction Conference is the single most effective way to connect with people who use drugs and those that serve them. The conference provides unique access to harm reduction service providers, advocates, researchers, clinicians and health departments, who return to their communities invigorated to share best practices, new strategies and innovations. Each harm reduction organization attending the conference reaches thousands of people impacted by drug use.
