Harm Reduction International is a leading non-governmental organisation working to promote and expand support for harm reduction. With over 8,000 members worldwide, Harm Reduction International is the largest membership-based global harm reduction association.
We work to reduce the negative health, social and human rights impacts of drug use and drug policy – such as the increased vulnerability to HIV and hepatitis infection among people who inject drugs – by promoting evidence-based public health policies and practices, and human rights based approaches to drug policy.
We are an influential global source of research, policy/legal analysis and advocacy on drug use, health and human rights issues.
The organisation is an NGO in Special Consultative Status with the Economic and Social Council of the United Nations.
