As Australia’s peak body for harm reduction, Anex acts as a dedicated advocate for the acknowledgement, promotion and provision of evidence-based practice to reduce the harms associated with drug use.
The harm reduction strategies we support, are not only safe, practical and realistic but cost-effective. We target preventable causes of drug-related harm with practical measures that are generally inexpensive, easy to implement and have a high impact on individual and community health.
The harm reduction approach acknowledges the significance of any positive change individuals make in their lives while being complementary to other programs designed to assist cessation or reduction of overall drug consumption.
In keeping with harm reduction philosophy, Anex neither criticizes nor condones illicit drug use.
