Harm reduction is a pillar of the Canadian Drugs and Substances Strategy and is integral to Canada’s effort to reduce the impact of HIV and hepatitis C on the health of Canadians.

The Harm Reduction Fund prioritizes front-line, community-based projects that aim to reduce HIV and hepatitis C infections among individuals who share drug-use equipment. Funding of approximately two years is intended to focus on communities where there is evidence of high rates of substance use, HIV and hepatitis C related to the sharing of injection and inhalation drug-use equipment.
