Needle and Syringe Programs (NSP's).


 The information provided on this page is correct at the time of publication, but may not remain accurate.

If you discover any innaccuracy's in this page, please contact CAHMA to inform us.

Information on other states can be found on AIVL's NSP and LEGAL webpage.

In addition to these outlets, many chemist shops in Canberra provide fit-packs for a small fee.

 

 Primary outlets.

Primary NSP's are services dedicated to the provision of an extended range of injecting equipment (and some other services) to injecting drug users. This range of equipment includes 3, 5, 10 and 20 ml syringes (barrels), a range of different guage needles, winged infusion sets (butterflies), pill filters, sterile water, swabs & cotton, as well as a range of sharps bins and the usual 4 and 8 pack fit-kits. These services also deliver information and educational materials on issues relating to injecting drug use and health, and make referrals to a range of health and social services, including drug treatment services.
