A community response to alcohol and other drug issues in the City of Yarra

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.
