The Ontario Harm Reduction Distribution Program (OHRDP), established in 2006, is a not-for-profit, provincially funded program through the Hepatitis C Secretariat within the Ministry of Health and Long Term Care and is located in Kingston, Ontario, as a division of Kingston Community Health Centres . The OHRDP provides harm reduction supplies, educational materials and knowledge translation and exchange opportunities to Needle Syringe Programs across Ontario.
These goals aim to ensure that the community and clients served by each Needle Syringe Program are receiving the highest quality product, service and education achievable.
Upon request, all Needle Syringe Programs in Ontario have access to the following harm reduction equipment, free of charge, from the OHRDP:
* The harm reduction supplies distributed by the OHRDP to Needle Syringe Programs complement those provided through Public Health (needles, syringes, condoms and biohazard bins).
While specific harm reduction supplies are distributed solely to the provincial Needle Syringe Programs, the education materials listed on our website are for public order so, if interested, please view our resources and library page or contact us for more information.
