What harm reduction means to me?

professor and honorary president of IHRA, International Harm Reduction Association

Harm reduction means a common sense, non-judgmental and pragmatic way of dealing with problems caused by the use of drugs. 
It emphasizes tolerance, respect for the personal choices of others and respect for human rights.
It favors evidence over anecdote, courage over cowardice and doing what is right even if it seems to send out the “wrong message”. 
It means doing what has to be done to protect the public health in the face of opposition from all quarters because it is the right thing to do.
It means changing the way people think by discussion, advocacy and evidence.
It means reserving the right to be wrong and owning up when you are and when there may be unintended negative consequences.
It means working with some of the best people in the world.
It means dealing with some of the worst.
It means turning colleagues into lifelong friends.
Harm Reduction is the only effective way of improving health and reducing death among drug users.
