This is a tough time of the year for the community we serve
Donations deliver real solutions: housing, harm reduction and clinical resources
The Mobile Needle Exchange (NEX van) program focuses PHS harm reduction operations and experience throughout the city of Vancouver to pick up discarded dirty needles, and to provide education on safe use of illicit drugs. It promotes connections with social services and housing organizations to build community involvement.
The NEX van exists to reduce the risk of HIV and Hepatitis C, as well as the risks of bacterial and fungal infections associated with intravenous drug use. It also provides thousands of referrals to healthcare, detox, treatment and other services each year.
