Reducing harms with respect for the rights of people who use drugs

Harm reduction is comprised of a range of public health strategies designed to lessen the negative social and/or physical consequences associated with various human behaviors, both legal and illegal. Since the beginning of the AIDS epidemic, GLIDE has used harm reduction strategies to staunch the spread of disease and reduce stigma.
