K•A•C: Promoting Health Through Harm Reduction
We focus on harm reduction as a key public health strategy. ‘Harm reduction’ refers to policies, regulations and actions that focus on reducing health risks, usually by providing safer forms of hazardous products or encouraging less risky behaviours, rather than solely focussing on eradication of products or behaviours.
Harm reduction is a key public health strategy grounded in human rights.
We have over forty years of experience of work on drug use, HIV, smoking, sexual health, and prisons.
We undertake a wide range of events and communications. We aim to include all stakeholders. Our ethos is to link knowledge transfer and policy development to achieve impact at individual, organisational, community, national and international levels.
