Do Not Share Syringes

Blood borne infections are commonly spread by people who inject drugs and share needles or syringes. Diseases that are spread this way include: HIV/AIDS, hepatitis B, and hepatitis C.

People who inject drugs can spread viruses and diseases by sharing needles or drug preparation equipment that has been contaminated with infected blood. Viruses and diseases can be spread from person to person even if someone only tried injecting drugs many years ago.

If you inject drugs, try to stop and get into a treatment program. If you can't stop, do not reuse or share syringes, water, or drug works. more
