Harm reduction involves taking action through policy and programming to reduce the harmful effects of behavior. It involves a range of non-judgmental approaches and strategies aimed at providing and enhancing the knowledge, skills resources and supports for individuals, their families and communities to make informed decisions to be safer and healthier.
