Syringe Services Programs: A Technical Package of Effective Strategies and Approaches for Planning, Design, and Implementation
This technical package provides evidence of the effectiveness of strategies and approaches for supporting successful planning, design, implementation, and sustainability of syringe services programs (SSPs). This document was developed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) National Center for HIV/AIDS, Viral Hepatitis, STD, and TB Prevention in partnership with the National Alliance of State and Territorial AIDS Directors (NASTAD). It provides a broad framework for new and existing SSPs to ensure needs-based service delivery, reduce harms related to injection drug use, and link participants to services that support their health and wellness. This was developed through a review of scientific literature as well as from the experiences and current practices of a diverse mix of SSP directors, key stakeholders, and experts in harm reduction.
