Injecting Advice

Peer-Delivered Syringe Exchange Toolkit

Guest writer Empty. Written on . Posted in .

This toolkit from the Harm Reduction Coalition in the US is intended to provide examples of policies and practices from current PDSE programs so new and existing programs can think about and incorporate the parts that work for them. It gives an overview of points to consider in starting a PDSE program and is intended to generate new ideas for revising and improving existing PDSE programs.

Each section contains insight and ideas drawn from the experience of various programs and ends with Questions to Consider based on your own program’s needs. Throughout the toolkit, the Harm Reduction Coalition have included quotes from peers currently working at PDSE programs about their experiences and ideas.
