Harm Reduction Issues
Overdose deaths are preventable. We have the tools we need to stop people from dying from drugs.
190 people die from an overdose every day. That equals 70,000 avoidable deaths every year.
Harm Reduction offers evidence-based strategies that reduce the risk of dying from an overdose. We aim to support people who use drugs, and the people who love people who use drugs, with information to mitigate the risk of an overdose and to stop an overdose while it’s happening.
