Syringe Access Program
SAAF’s Syringe Access Program (SAP) provides information, education and referrals on HIV/AIDS, Viral Hepatitis and Sexually Transmitted Infections to adults who are currenting or have used substances.
What is the Purpose of The Syringe Access Program?
The point of syringe access programs is to provide:
- The exchange of used syringes for sterile syringes to promote safer injecting practices.
- To assist in reducing the spread of HIV, HEP C and other blood-borne diseases.
- Provide appropriate referrals for other services and treatment options.
- A non-judgmental location that promotes the safety of people who inject.
- A venue for safe testing and refers to treatment services.
The exchange is 1 for 1. Participants can always receive some syringes, even if they don’t have any to exchange. You can exchange up to 100 syringes per visit, per person.
