The Kentucky Harm Reduction Coalition (KyHRC) improves the public health of Kentuckians by reducing overdoses, overdose deaths, and the transmission of blood-borne diseases such as HIV and HCV.

KyHRC does this by increasing access to Syringe Service Program Sites, increasing the distribution of Naloxone, and by providing Hep C and HIV testing throughout the community.

It is never to late to change your life for the better!

“Our wounds are often the openings into the best and most beautiful part of us.”

The purpose of the KYHRC is to educate, train, empower, and engage the community and active users about the benefits of Naloxone and safe needle exchange in the harm reduction process.
