Expanded access to syringe service programs needed to limit HCV, HIV infections


People who inject drugs are visiting syringe service programs (SSP) at a higher rate than they were a decade ago, and there has been large decreases in HCV and/or HIV infections in minorities, but that's not the case for whites. Better access to SSP is required, especially in the rural white areas to fight off the increasing population of HCV and/or HIV patients.
