Healthy Sexuality & Harm Reduction

The Healthy Sexuality and Harm Reduction team works at multiple levels to promote healthy sexuality and harm reduction; to reduce the burden of sexually-transmitted and blood-borne infections (STBBIs); to diminish other harms associated with sexuality, drug use, and society’s response to these practices; and to redress social and health inequities.
