Needle exchange helped NZ avoid high rates of HIV

Needle exchange is credited as one of the key strategies in helping maintain low rates of HIV among PWID in New Zealand.

Between the years of 1996 and 2018 the average rate of contraction of HIV was one case per year during this time.

This is a truly remarkable achievement and proves without question that a properly resourced Harm Reduction program can save hundreds of lives.
