WHAT IS HARM REDUCTION
Harm reduction is fundamentally a principle in opening up avenues to alternatives and better informed choices - whether to prevent or eradicate harm inducing habits or activities. According to Harm Reduction International (hri.global), Harm Reduction should encompass a range of health and social practices. These include, but are not limited to smoking, drug consumption, dietary and much more. This is in accordance to avoid stigma and to keep people alive whilst encouraging positive change in their lives. By practicing harm reduction efforts, alternatives can be sought after rather than leaving consumers with no choice.
