The Australian National Council on Drugs (ANCD) has released a position paper on needle and syringe programs (NSPs) and is calling on all Australian governments to significantly increase both their commitment and funding to these vital public health programs.
The position paper is based primarily on recognition of the long standing success of NSPs in preventing and limiting the spread of HIV and other blood borne viruses (BBVs), and the ability of these services to engage people in the health system in a way that no other service is able to do.
