May 19 is National Hepatitis Testing Day. Roughly 25% of people living with HIV are also living with Hep C (and 80% of these people are injection drug users). Did you know we offer Hep C testing through our Syringe Access program?
San Francisco AIDS Foundation has provided street-based syringe access services to injecting drug users (IDUs) since 1993.
The syringe access program currently has 11 sites a week and is one of the nation’s largest programs, providing more than 2.3 million clean syringes a year. The program is driven by more than 80 volunteers.
Not only does the syringe access program provide safer injection supplies, it also offers community-based services such as HIV testing, drug treatment referrals and medical care.
