Why are people who inject drugs provided with sterile needles and syringes? Government and non-government organisations provide people who inject drugs with access to needles and syringes to prevent the transmission of HIV and hepatitis C infections.

The Salvation Army supports the provision of needle and syringe programs (NSPs) as essential to a harm minimisation framework which recognises the imperative for a holistic approach to care that is multidisciplinary and integrated across the person’s life and needs. Having been at the forefront of NSPs for over 20 years and operating one of the busiest NSPs in the world (St Kilda), The Salvation Army has developed a significant evidence base indicating the positive impacts NSPs have on the prevention of death and injury as a result of drug use, as well as opening up avenues to treatment for individuals.
