The Queensland Needle and Syringe Program aims to reduce the incidence of blood-borne viruses and injecting related injuries and diseases. The program supplies sterile injecting equipment to people who inject drugs (PWID) with the aim of ensuring PWID do not re-use and share needles, thus decreasing injection-related harms and reducing the spread of blood-borne viruses within the wider community.1
The PNSP is funded by the Communicable Diseases Branch of Queensland Health and administered by The Pharmacy Guild of Australia, Queensland Branch.
