Needle & Syringe Program

The Pharmacy Guild of Australia (NSW Branch) administers the program for the NSW Ministry of Health.

This program is part of a "harm minimisation" strategy designed to stop the spread of blood borne viruses such as Hepatitis C.

By providing sterile syringes which can be accessed easily and anonymously, its aim is to have every person who injects drugs use a sterile syringe every time. Pharmacies are warmly invited to join the scheme.

For enquiries please contact The Guild on (02) 9467 7100 or email:
