Eliminating Stigma, Saving Lives

Harm reduction interventions like syringe service programs and safe consumption spaces serve many important purposes. First and foremost, they save lives and reduce the transmission of disease. They also help to build community among marginalized populations and aid with reintegration of these populations into the broader society.
