About Us

K•A•C is a private sector public health agency.
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.

As a result of our work on the Global Forum on Nicotine (GFN) we have received numerous requests to assist with organising meetings in the UK for colleagues in other countries, who regard the approach to policy and regulation here as in many ways a leading model.
