Iowa Harm Reduction Coalition is a collective of community members, students, and those impacted by drug use working to improve health equity in Iowa communities through mobile outreach, education, research, and advocacy.
To reduce the harms associated with drug use and promote health equity through compassionate, nonjudgmental community services, education, and advocacy.
Iowans who are impacted by drug use are empowered to care for themselves and one another. Health inequities experienced by people who use drugs are eliminated. Health professions students are trained to practice harm reduction and meet people where they are, outside of the clinic walls. Community members and care providers view addiction as an illness and treat people who use drugs with dignity, without stigma or judgement.
