Healthy Sexuality & Harm Reduction

The HSHR Team works at multiple levels to promote healthy sexuality and harm reduction; to reduce the burden of STBBIs; to diminish other harms associated with sexuality, drug use, and society's response to these practices; and to redress social and health inequities.


  • Provide supplies that keep people safer, including condoms, injection drug use supplies and safer smoking/inhalation equipment
  • Provide education on overdose prevention and response, including free take home naloxone kits to those at risk of overdose
  • Ensure people who have tested positive for chlamydia, gonorrhea, hepatitis C, syphilis and HIV are treated and that their sexual partners are confidentially notified
  • Provide outreach nursing services, including testing and treatment, in the Remand Centre, Manitoba Youth Centre, the Street Connections van and other community places
  • Connect people to health and social services
  • Deliver education to communities and healthcare providers
  • Advocate on healthy sexuality and harm reduction issues
