STIGMA KILLS!

Harm Reduction Action Center in Denver, CO is proud to announce the launch of its new website, a destination for harm reductionists near and far. The website offers destinations for our program participants, healthcare providers, and the larger community we serve. 

It also prominently features their recently-filmed anti-stigma public service announcements, all of which are easily shareable and downloadable.  The anti-stigma message is shot in documentary style and features actual participants, providers, and community advocates all of whom address the universal nature of stigma and its insidious nature in our common quest to end HIV, HCV, and overdoses.

As part of the Fed Up rally Canadian Students for Sensible Drug Policy (CSSDP) met with Members of Canadian Parliament at an All Party Round Table to present our latest policy brief titled, “Drug Checking Services Necessary to Prevent Youth Drug-Related Deaths." Read the brief here: http://cssdp.org/DrugCheckingBrief.pdf

Drug checking (also called pill testing) is a harm reduction intervention that helps people who use drugs identify and avoid ingesting unknown and potentially more dangerous adulterants found in drugs.

Drug checking empowers people to take control of their health, reduces drug-related deaths, and improves public health epidemiological data on what drugs are currently on the market in order to prevent future harm.

Drug checking services do not endorse drug use, but rather recognize that people continue to use drugs despite criminalization
