We are part of Healthy Sexuality and Harm Reduction in the Winnipeg Regional Health Authority's (WRHA) Population and Public Health Program.

 
Public health nurses and outreach workers staff our van, which drives around the city every evening except Sunday. You can also find us during the day from Monday to Friday in our office on the main floor of 496 Hargrave St.
 
We base our services on a harm reduction philosophy. This means that we support programs and policies that improve the health of people who use drugs and support people in their efforts to keep themselves and the larger community safe, without judging people for their sexual or drug use practices.

Frequently-asked questions (FAQ)

Does this kind of program increase "dirty" needles in our community?

No. Harm reduction programs often recover as many needles as they distribute, which means fewer used needles discarded in the community.

 

Closing down needle distribution programs has been associated with outbreaks of HIV, yet no effect on drug use rates of discarded needles .

 

If you do find a used needle, we can help. For more information, check out [What to do when you find a needle?]
