Government of Canada launches Harm Reduction Fund

Deadline: 6 June 2019

The Government of Canada has launched the Harm Reduction Fund which is administered by the Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC).

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.

Objectives

  • strengthen the knowledge of factors associated with increased vulnerability to HIV and hepatitis C among people who share drug-use equipment;
  • strengthen the skills, competencies, and abilities of people who use substances and share drug-use equipment to prevent HIV and hepatitis C infections;
  • reduce stigma and discrimination toward mental health, substance use, and people who share drug-use equipment; and,
  • reduce risk-taking behaviour among people who use substances and share drug-use equipment (injection and inhalation equipment).
