Needle-Exchange Programs.

18035. Needle-Exchange Programs.

This paper argues that needle-exchange programs are effective in promoting safer practices among injection-drug users, and that they thereby help to reduce the spread of HIV/AIDS. The arguments against such programs are discussed and rebutted. For example, they do not increase drug use, neighborhood crime, or the disposal of needles on the street. By contrast, there is a growing body of research evidence in support of such programs. Needle-exchange programs help reduce HIV/AIDS rates by providing not only clean needles but also a place to receive referrals for treatment, counseling, and other health related services. KEYWORDS: needle exchange programs drug addiction HIV/AIDS. APA Style. 5 pages, 18 footnotes, 7 bibliographic sources. 1,496 words.
