Group Name: Regent Park Community Health Centre – Harm Reduction
Description: Regent Park Community Health Centre (RPCHC) was established in 1973. It is a non-profit, community-based organization dedicated to improving the health of Regent Park area residents and the community as a whole, by providing high quality, integrated primary health care services, health promotion services and community capacity building. Our priority is to reduce the health inequities experienced by low-income, immigrant & refugee, non-status and marginally-housed & homeless populations.
Harm reduction supplies and services reduce the health and social risks associated with alcohol and drug use — for the individual as well as the community. Staff distribute harm reduction information and materials on site and during outreach shifts. Workers provide information, referral and support to health and social services. Needle exchange supplies include stem kits, sharp containers, distilled water, ascorbic acid, syringes, alcohol swabs, filters and condoms.
