Translating Research Into Practice: Making Health Systems Work
Dec 15 @ 12:00 pm

Never has the time been so critical to focus more on how to turn research into public health promotion and practice. It is time to clarify what the research data is telling us and how does that translate into what we need to do in public health. Recently at CDC’s Division of HIV AIDS Prevention, CDC required that presentations had to highlight how research informed or impacted public health practice. To solve our nation’s and world’s problems, we need research to be well linked and translated into practice.

Harm Reduction Conference
Jan 9 all-day

Harm Reduction Hawaii has actively participated in cooperation with other organizations and individuals to improve the services provided to the more marginalized by our society. Since its inception, Harm Reduction Hawaii has successfully conducted two major conferences with over 250 people attending, over 12 trainings varying from one to 4 days reaching over 500 people, and 34 community forums. Our speakers’ bureau has provided training through in-services to a large variety of community-based agencies, colleges, and governmental entities.

Harm Reduction Hawaii evolved from the planning committees for the 1994 and 1995 Hawaii Harm Reduction Conferences. Throughout the 1994 and 1995 conference planning, many individuals representing a wide range of organizations came together. Through this effort the need for an ongoing organization was perceived and Harm Reduction Hawaii was formed.

HRH is a coalition of individuals and agencies working toward the implementation of effective and respectful services to improve the health and well being of drug users and other marginalized people in Hawaii. HRH incorporated in October of 1999 and received its 501(3)(c) status in May of 2000. HRH is a community-based organization with representation from social services agencies throughout Hawaii and governed by a Board of Directors. The Board of Directors meets to plan activities, provide direction and support to the Executive Director, work on local and national advocacy efforts, and to review information and materials.

HRH works to educate health and human service providers and the general community about the philosophy, models and set of strategies embodied in Harm Reduction. This innovative public health approach seeks to minimize the harms associated with legal and illegal substances through individual, group and community interventions. The harm reduction model addresses a wide range of alcohol and other drug-related harms, including HIV/AIDS and other infectious diseases, illness, death, dysfunction, violence and community disintegration.
