Harm Reduction Australia (HRA) is a national organisation for individuals committed to reducing the health, social and economic harms potentially associated with drug use.
HRA is a membership-based organisation that represents the views of its members. Our members are primarily people working in the health, welfare and law enforcement sectors, but also include concerned family members, consumers, students and other individuals wanting to advocate for the continuation and expansion of harm reduction policies in Australia.
HRA was formed in 2015 by a group of professionals concerned about drug policy in Australia. For over thirty years Australia’s National Drug Strategy has focused on harm minimisation. In recent years, the commitment and support for this evidence-based and effective approach to addressing drug use has waned across many of its government signatories.
