The Harm Reduction Education and Technical Assistance project out of the University of New Hampshire, funded by the New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services, Bureau of Infectious Disease, aims to educate health care providers and professionals on harm reduction best practices for individuals who use drugs. This project is a partnership of the UNH Department of Nursing, the NH Citizens Health Initiative, and the New Hampshire Harm Reduction Coalition.

Phase 1 of the project focused on providing in-person trainings and technical assistance to health care providers across New Hampshire. The Phase 1 Interim Report below shows the results of the project from May 2019 - November 2019. The map to the right shows where we provided trainings (green) and technical assistance (blue) across New Hampshire.

Phase 2 of the project (December 2019 - August 2020) focuses on surveying pharmacists across New Hampshire on harm reduction practices and providing virtual trainings to pharmacists.

Phase 3 of the project (Sepbtember 2020 - August 2021) brings together community members from across New Hampshire to share harm reduction best practices to improve the health of people who inject drugs (PWID) in New Hampshire.
