BHRC is comprised of a diverse group of health professionals and community members who are committed to harm reduction principles and who engage in education, advocacy, and service in the Baltimore area and statewide.
To build a local network of health, policy, and social service professionals and other community members committed to harm reduction principles, and to serve as a conduit for community involvement, education, and advocacy in Baltimore and statewide.
A world in which harm reduction is a foundational principle in improving health and safety.
We believe that:
- An optimal healthcare system is one that uses and embraces a harm reduction model;
- All individuals have the right to receive care that is free from judgment and stigma.
What is Harm Reduction?
Harm reduction refers to a range of policies and practices designed to reduce the harmful consequences associated with drug use, sex work, and other activities that may contribute to poor health outcomes. Harm reduction is an alternative and, in some cases, a complement to the more conventional approaches of demand and supply reduction.
