Needle and Syringe Program

NSP Page Header

From our earliest days, our organisation and our team have supported the use of a variety of harm minimisation practices to reduce the transmission of HIV in the ACT. One of the most effective ways of doing this has been the provision of the Needle & Syringe Program (NSP). NSPs are a public health initiative to provide sterile injecting equipment to reduce the harm that can come from sharing equipment.

Meridian is a secondary NSP. We provide pre-packaged 8-packs as well as sharps disposal containers. Meridian staff are trained to provide this service during business hours. We have a large sharps disposal bin at the front of the Meridian office, available 24 hours and a range of information and resources for people who use injecting drugs.

Fit Packs are available at our office in Turner during working hours.
