Syringe Exchange

Federal Funding Ban on Syringe Exchange

“Syringe exchange programs, which provide sterile needles as well as comprehensive prevention services such as condoms, HIV testing and risk counseling to IDUs, have been proven effective at reducing the risk of HIV and viral hepatitis infection. In addition, these programs safely dispose of used needles, making neighborhoods safer for the public in general and law enforcement in particular.

Unfortunately, Congress currently prohibits the use of any federal funds for syringe exchange programs, regardless of a mountain of scientific data and the consensus of the public health community.” (“federal funding for syringe exchange” an issue brief by NMAC)
