Baltimore Harm Reduction Coalition
Function of Organization/Site:
The Baltimore Harm Reduction Coalition aims to build a network of health and social service students, alumni, and professionals committed to harm reduction principles and to serve as a conduit for direct community involvement and advocacy. BHRC was established in January 2011 by a group of students interested in promoting harm reduction in Baltimore. We are currently a program of Fusion Partnerships, Inc. BHRC envisions a world in which harm reduction is a foundational principle in improving health outcomes and informing public policy.
