What Is an IVDU Harm Reduction Program:
An IVDU Harm Reduction Program is a public health program for intravenous drug users. It is a comprehensive set of programs designed to reduce the spread of HIV/AIDS and other blood borne infections among injection drug users, their families and within our communities. The program exchanges new, sterile syringes in for used, contaminated syringes. Important risk reduction information is provided and assistance is available to help drug users get into drug treatment and health care programs.
