New South Wales needle and syringe program (NSP) workers forum



The Needle and syringe program (NSP) has been preventing HIV and hepatitis C for over 21 years. The annual forum is an important part of this history, creating a space for over 150 NSP workers, researchers, policy makers, and non-government organisations to share ideas, to learn from each other, and to develop new approaches.

The forum this year aims to challenge participants to reflect on the industry's past, to critically look at lessons learned, to celebrate achievements, to respond to current challenges and most of all, to be reinvigorated and play a part in future-styling of the NSP sector. The forum will include multiple break-out sessions, workshops, presentations, speed talks, and panel-discussions.

The forum will include three themes Reflect, respond, reinvigorate. Abstracts are welcome and will focus on the history of the NSP, respond to current user perspectives or to harm reduction, or which reinvigorate the sector by being part of future-styling the NSP.
