People use drugs. While we support substance abuse prevention and treatment efforts, we live in reality and know that the most effective way to prevent the spread HIV and Hepatitis C (HCV) is to stop it at its source: the needle. We know that our participants care about their lives and their wellbeing.
Stigma prevents society from making informed decisions about public health. Old-fashioned laws and attitudes surrounding drug addiction, accidental overdoses, and the spread of blood-borne pathogens like HCV and HIV have historically served to perpetuate the problems they sought to resolve. The HRAC's current initiatives—based on science, data, and compassion—are good for the health and safety of everyone in our community.
