Needle and syringe program mobile app campaign

This campaign is to launch and promote the new needle and syringe program (NSP) mobile app and encourage users to download it. The app will:

  • promote greater awareness of NSPs in WA to people who need these services
  • provide quick and easy access to an interactive map of NSP locations.

Needle and syringe programs (NSPs) provide sterile needles and syringes to people who inject drugs (PWID). This helps prevent people who inject drugs from getting blood-borne viruses such as HIV/AIDS, hepatitis C and hepatitis B.

NSPs are a harm reduction strategy and seek to minimise related harms to individuals and the general community.
