Needle Exchange Programs

28 Signatures Goal: 100

Colorado has a large problem that is currently going untreated. Through the end of 1996, some 1,200 Colorado residents age 13 and over had injection-related AIDS or had died from it. About 25 percent of all Colorado\'s AIDS cases are injection-related. In the Denver metropolitan area alone, Dr. Scott Holmberg of the Centers for Disease Control estimates there are 15,100 uninfected persons who inject drugs and who thus are at risk of getting HIV. We must encourage clean needle exchange in order to reduce the spread of disease.
