National Day of Action on Syringe Exchange: Let’s Do This (Again)!

| March 21, 2012 | 0 Comments

Today, all across the country, activists are taking action to demand the federal government support life-saving syringe access programs.

We need your help.

Last year, Congress re-imposed the anti-scientific ban on using federal dollars to fund syringe exchange programs.  These programs are among the most powerful public health programs ever developed and are extremely effective at preventing transmission of HIV and Hepatitis C among injection drug users.

Call your U.S. Senator now and tell them to lift the ban on funding syringe exchange programs!
