Harm Reduction is a general term defined as policies, programs and interventions that are designed to reduce or minimize harms that are associated with certain behaviors, including those that are risky and illegal. Harm Reduction aiming at reducing harms related to drug use is currently a strategy that is adopted by many countries around the world.
