Establishment of harm reduction shelters in high-risk areas

The harm reduction shelter is a station to provide harm reduction services in city-level hangouts to enhance the access of addicts and the homeless to harm reduction services. These shelters offer services similar to a drop-in center, but instead of providing services in a fixed building, these services are provided in a shelter that can be moved to addicts’ hangouts.
