Harm Reduction Defined

Posted Sep 23 2009 10:17pm
From the International Harm Reduction Association:
‘Harm Reduction’ refers to policies, programmes and practices that aim primarily to reduce the adverse health, social and economic consequences of the use of legal and illegal psychoactive drugs without necessarily reducing drug consumption. Harm reduction benefits people who use drugs, their families and the community.
Not bad for a definition developed by a committee.
