Harm Reduction Commission

The Harm Reduction Commission was established in August 2018, with Governor Baker’s signing into law of chapter 208 of the Acts of 2018. The commission is charged with reviewing and making recommendations regarding harm reduction opportunities to address substance use disorder. The commission is comprised of the Secretary of Health and Human Services, who chairs the commission, and a diverse panel of policymakers, public health professionals, legal scholars, clinicians, and local residents.
