Introducing prison needle and syringe programs (PNSPs) in Canada is an important solution to the growing HIV and hepatitis C epidemic in Canada’s federal prison system. But making this happen requires political will. WE NEED YOU. Public support for PNSPs is essential to ensure that Canadian politicians and decision-makers are committed to supporting the immediate implementation of PNSPs.

I know 13 women and men who caught hepatitis C or HIV while they were inside. They got it from sharing needles. Prison is not going to stop anybody from doing drugs. But [they] can stop people from sharing needles if they gave them out.”
