Harm Reduction Australia (HRA) acknowledges the significant work of the Federal Government in improving health services for all in the community, both during the COVID-19 pandemic and prior.

Investments in mental health, increased hospital funding, national action plans are all welcomed.

However, now it’s time to remove the financial discrimination all governments are imposing on one sector of the community; a community already stigmatised, and a community that has watched too many coronial inquiries recommend changes to the affordability of access to treatments that might have prevented tragic loss of life.
