This website will sent a letter to your Federal Congress Representative, but also if you know others who may be interested helping you can send them the information so they can help too. Please help use win and stop the spread of HIV and Hepatitis.

Saving Lives and Money

Besides saving lives, these needle exchanges deliver a huge financial payoff. Consider the case of an HIV-positive addict who infects eight others in a one-year period (a very modest estimate). If each turns to Medicaid to pay his or her lifetime medical costs (at an average $119,000 plus), that's about a $1 million burden for taxpayers--money that could have been saved if the one addict had been in a needle-exchange program.

On the 1st day of the conference @Miami Downtown Hilton, Thursday 13 of November at 7pm there will be a workshop on the need to start Syringe Exchange Programs in Miami, Florida or any place else in Florida and/or other locations in need. The workshop will be facilitated by leaders of organizations who have been doing Needles Exchange Program for over 20 years.
Leaders from the North America Syringe Exchange Network http://www.nasen.org/ , who can provide Starter Kits and Technical Support as well as cheaper cost of needed equipment will also be available for discussion. Any interested party is invited to participate. We actively seek the participation
of church members and pastors; the health related professionals; attorneys; government officials as well as employees and local authorities. Persons who wish to attend the Syringe Exchange Workshop do not need to be a participant to the conference. You may contact me about this meeting and/or Paula [email protected] (202) 213-6276 x15 about participating in the conference as participant or vendor. We know that syringe exchange works; we know the political will is more open to today's reality. Blacks and Hispanics are amongst the largest percentage of new HIV and Hepatitis new cases due to IV Drug use. We are working against the silences, censorship, myth,
misinformation and lack of action. Please contribute to the solution.
