Winnipeg Regional Health Authority

Healthy Sexuality and Harm Reduction (HSHR) is a service area within the Population and Public Health department of the Winnipeg Regional Health Authority.

The HSHR team works at multiple levels to promote healthy sexuality and harm reduction; to reduce the burden of sexually-transmitted and blood-borne infections; to diminish other harms associated with sexuality, drug use, and society’s response to these practices; and to redress social and health inequities.

Our flagship service is Street Connections, a harm reduction and nursing van that drives around the city of Winnipeg six nights a week.
