Petitioning Minister of Health, Government of Canada Hon. Rona Ambrose

Health Minister Rona Ambrose: Improve access to prevention & treatment services. Stop building barriers.

Harm reduction practices promote health, prevent death and disability, and enhance access to critical health and social services — especially for those experiencing poverty, mental illness and homelessness, and for others who are not well-connected to traditional health and community supports. The Canadian Nurses Association (CNA) and the following organizations call on Health Minister Rona Ambrose to increase access to prevention and treatment services and to stop building barriers.

Association of Registered Nurses of British Columbia
Canadian Association of Nurses in AIDS Care
Canadian Family Practice Nurses Association
Centretown Community Health Centre
College and Association of Registered Nurses of Alberta
Community Health Nurses of Canada
Community and Hospital Infection Control Association - Canada
Global Platform for Drug Consumption Rooms
Provincial Infection Control Network of British Columbia
Registered Nurses' Association of Ontario
