24 hour dispensing unit trial to prevent BBVs and injecting-related injury

Date posted: 21 December 2016

The trial of after hours dispensing units for the Needle Syringe Program (NSP) will begin on 22 December 2016 and aims to improve access to sterile injecting equipment to prevent blood-borne virus transmission and injecting-related injury and infection.

This is a harm reduction initiative that will enable 24 hour access to equipment in Darwin, Northern Territory (NT) and Palmerston NT for the first time. Tokens will be available at NSPs at Darwin, Palmerston and Alice Springs from next week. For more information, see the links below.
