Needle Exchanges Help Curb Disease, but Legislators Don't Like Them
For decades, public health experts have known that syringe exchange programs reduce the spread of certain viral infections - like H.I.V.,hepatitis B and hepatitis C - by removing infected needles from circulation. Studies have shown that programs using sterile injection equipment are both safe and save money. And yet they are rarely seen in the United States. Why not? That's the topic of this week's Healthcare Triage. This episode was adapted from a column Austin wrote for The Upshot.

Mike Pence's Indiana: Needle Exchanges (HBO)
In 2015 there was a huge spike in Scott Co in HIV cases among heroin users. After waffling (and praying) Gov. Mike Pence allowed an emergency needle exchange which stopped the outbreak. Needle exchange is now allowed in a handful of counties but the barriers are high: the locals have to pay for it themselves and the problem counties are often the poorest. Evan McMorris-Santoro takes a look at how health care spending bumps up against social mores, and how that might translate now that Pence is about to become VP.

SEP Syringe Exchange Program - Are 867,000 needles a problem?
SUBSCRIBE HERE: https://www.youtube.com/northwestdigitalnews Email: [email protected] Jeff Wilson joins Kevin Hunter and Chris Bornstedt in studio to discuss the needle exchange program in Cowlitz County. Is there a safety concern for children in the county when 867,000 needles are being given out to drug users each year? Started in the late 1990's, the syringe exchange program went into full gear by 2001. By 2010, over 300,000 needles were being given out. Six years later, the numbers would nearly triple, approaching 1 million needles a year. Who is picking up all this trash, let alone the hazards this many needles present to public safety? Was this the goal of SEP?

Iowans Are Trying To Legalize An Underground Needle Exchange | World of Hurt (HBO)
In Iowa, a spike in opioid abuse among people under 30 is causing another public health crisis: cases of Hepatitis C — a virus that attacks the liver — are up 375 percent according to the CDC. To combat the problem, a group of Iowans has been operating an underground needle exchange. And now, they’re lobbying for a bill to legalize that effort. Under state law, it’s illegal to possess or distribute clean syringes for an “unlawful” purpose. The Iowa Harm Reduction Coalition, founded in 2016 by medical student Sarah Ziegenhorn, 29, provides weekly outreach services in cities across Iowa by distributing safer injection kits, condoms and test kits for HIV and hepatitis C. The clean syringes, provided by partnering non-profit Prairie Works, are handed out discreetly from the back of a car. More than 30 states have legalized distribution of needles and Iowa could be next if the bill, slated for a vote in the Senate next week, continues its journey to the governor’s office. Ziegenhorn is a weekly fixture at state capitol, leading the charge and drawing numbers of constituents to bring the issue to the attention of legislatures. This is the second attempt to legalize in a state where there are very few opioid related regulations or policies in place. Many legislators believe the presence of needle exchange programs would encourage drug use and prevent proper law enforcement.

CDC Report Finds Needle Exchange Programs on the Rise
A recently released report by the federal government found that needle exchange programs increased significantly over the last decade. But the report also found that injection drug users have not always benefited from syringe services programs, as they don't always use sterile needles. Researchers from the CDC examined data from 22 cities with high rates of HIV for injection drug users. According to the data, 54-percent of those users took advantage of needle exchange programs in 2015. A decade earlier, data shows that only 36-percent of the users participated in a syringe services program. http://www.upi.com/Health_News/2016/11/30/Significant-rise-in-use-of-needle-exchange-programs-CDC/6101480528627/ http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com

Florida Needs Syringe Exchange
In 2016, more than 6,000 Floridians died of an opioid overdose, a 35 percent increase from the year before. Governor Rick Scott has declared the opioid crisis a public health emergency, and is promoting numerous bills designed to tighten restrictions on prescription opioids. But overdose deaths from non-prescription opioids are increasing at alarming rates – in Florida, deaths from fentanyl increased 97 percent in 2016. The Governor should support the one bill that gets to the heart of the public health crisis – SB800/H579, the Infectious Disease Elimination Pilot Programs Act (IDEA) – that would permit Florida counties to establish syringe exchange pilot programs for people who use drugs in their communities. Syringe exchange programs have a proven record of reducing HIV and Hepatitis C infection, preventing overdose, and bringing people into treatment without raising rates of drug use or crime. One year into its operations, Florida’s only current program, in Miami, has enrolled more than 600 clients, removed 100,000 dirty needles from the streets, conducted hundreds of tests for HIV and Hepatitis C, and linked more than 80 people to treatment. These are frontline public health services desperately needed in many other counties throughout the state.
