The Harm Reduction work group advocates for the health, wellbeing, rights, and dignity of people who use substances by supporting organizational, clinical and public policy approaches/strategies that have the potential to save lives and reduce potential harms of substance use. The work group focuses on supporting harm reduction services throughout Colorado, including overdose awareness and broad access to naloxone, broad access to safe injection supplies and facilities, increasing the use of Fentanyl test strips, HIV and hepatitis C testing and linkage to care, and harm reduction-based criminal justice reforms.
The Harm Reduction Work Group meets every other month — because of the COVID-19 pandemic, all meetings will take place by remote conferencing. The current work group roster, most recent meeting minutes, and upcoming meeting schedule can be found on this page.
