Harm Reduction Services
Promoting safer practices
Harm reduction is crucial in promoting health and safety, particularly among vulnerable populations. By providing access to clean injecting equipment, sexual health supplies, and education about BBV prevention, we aim to reduce the transmission of infections and improve overall well-being.
At Hepatitis ACT, we prioritise the health and well-being of our community through non-judgmental, evidence-based harm reduction services. Our commitment to harm reduction aims to minimise risks and promote safer practices for everyone. Our range of services:
Needle and Syringe Program (NSP)
We offer a confidential and supportive NSP, providing access to clean needles and syringes for people who use injecting drugs. Our program promotes harm reduction by reducing the transmission of blood borne viruses and other associated health risks.
Sexual Health Supplies
Ensuring sexual health is an essential aspect of our services. We provide sexual health supplies, contributing to safe practices and the prevention of sexually transmitted infections.
Blood Borne Virus (BBV) Prevention Packs
Our BBV prevention packs contain essential resources and information to help individuals safeguard themselves from blood-borne viruses, such as hepatitis B, hepatitis C, and HIV.
Referral and Community Linkages
We recognise the importance of a comprehensive support network. As part of our harm reduction services, we offer referrals and community linkages to connect individuals with relevant health and social services as needed.
At Hepatitis ACT, we foster a non-judgmental and empathetic approach to ensure individuals feel respected and supported.
We are proud to be at the forefront of harm reduction efforts in our community. Our dedicated team is here to provide guidance, support, and resources, promoting safer practices and empowering individuals to make informed choices.
Your well-being is our priority, and we are here to assist you every step of the way. Contact us for more information about our harm reduction services or to access our programs.
