This report provides an overview of needle and syringe programs (NSPs) in Canada. It examines barriers to access identified through literature review and interviews with key informants. NSPs aim to reduce the negative consequences of injection drug use by providing sterile injection equipment so that people do not inject with used syringes that may be contaminated. NSPs have been shown to reduce the risk for HIV transmission, to be cost effective, and to faciliate access to care, treatment and support services.
