How do you incorporate Harm Reduction principles & practices?

Community health outreach workers conduct health promotion services to individuals at high risk of HIV and viral Hepatitis C (HCV) infection and transmission through behaviors associated with their substance abuse. Outreach staff engage with substance users in individual street level encounters and group venues such as homeless shelters and feeding programs, and provide HIV/HCV risk reduction education, counseling and referral to substance abuse, HCV screening and HIV early intervention services. This project is supported with funding from the Office of Addiction Services of the Philadelphia Department of Behavioral Health and Mental Retardation Services.
