IHRA changes name to Harm Reduction International
The International Harm Reduction Association announced it would henceforth be known as Harm Reduction International.
The name change was announced by John-Peter Kools, Chair of the Board of Directors, and reflects the evolution and multi-faceted nature of the organisation of the 15 years since its foundation. Beginning life as a sort of professional network of harm reductionists, today Harm Reduction International is one of the leading international NGOs working on harm reduction research, policy, human rights, civil society collaboration and advocacy. The new name reflects this evolution, and the new status of the organisation.
