About Us

 Harm Reduction Victoria (HRVic)
is a community based, not for profit organisation.

In 1987, in the face of a growing HIV epidemic, a group of drug users, their friends, families and supporters established HRVic as an independent, user-driven community based organisation.

Funded primarily by the VIC Department of Human Services, HRVic provides education, practical support, information and advocacy to current and past users of illicit drugs, their friends, and allies. HRVic has often led the way in developing innovative approaches to peer education and community development, and has contributed to Australia having one of the lowest HIV rates among injecting drug users in the world.

 

OUR MISSION

Our aim is to educate, inform, support and advocate on behalf of
all Victorians who use drugs, their friends and their allies.
HRVic seeks to improve the way people who use drugs are treated in the broader community as well as by medical, community and government services.
The philosophy of harm reduction and advancing the health and human rights
of people who use drugs guides all of our work.
HRVic’s interventions are individually and collectively targeted,
in order to promote a culture of safer drug use.

Our Vision

A world where all people are treated the same and have the same opportunities regardless of their drug of choice.

Our Mission

Harm Reduction Victoria works to advance the health, dignity and social justice of people who use drugs in Victoria.

Our Role

Harm Reduction Victoria is the drug user organisation for the state of Victoria and a member of the national network of drug user organisations, headed by AIVL.  AIVL is the national peak body representing all state and territory drug user organisations across Australia.
