Harm Reduction VM Q&A

Harm Reduction Supply Machine Q&A

for Harm Reduction Advocates and Providers

 

Learn about the successes and barriers of launching a Harm Reduction Supply Machine in this free Q&A session!

 

Harm reduction supply or "vending" machines are a low-barrier public health service offering access to free safer use supplies. These machines reduce the health risks associated with using drugs and can be accessed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

In March 2021, Caracole, Greater Cincinnati ’s HIV service organization, launched Ohio’s first harm reduction supply machine to help reduce the transmission of infectious diseases, including HIV and hepatitis C, prevent overdoses and promote long-term recovery to people who use drugs.

Join us for a free, interactive Q&A session about our journey from harm reduction vending machine idea to execution.
