Reduce Hard

About Us

The Harm Reduction Program is part of the BC Centre for Disease Control. We believe every person has the right to the best health possible and should be treated with dignity and respect.

We advocate for a community-based participatory model where patients are partners. We see ourselves as 'co-learners' meaning we understand that clients are the ‘experts’ with lived experiences and, to reciprocate, we are open and share our knowledge and our expertise. We believe in including people who use illegal drugs from across BC in policy decisions and program changes.

About Harm Reduction

Harm reduction aims to keep people safe and minimize death, disease, and injury from high-risk behaviour. Harm reduction involves a range of support services and strategies to enhance the knowledge, skills, resources, and supports for individuals, families and communities to be safer and healthier.

The evidence shows it works and has many benefits for people who use substances, their families, and communities.
