About

We are looking for enthusiastic volunteers who are interested in advocating on behalf of individuals who use and inject drugs. There is a public health need to increase access to sterile hypodermic needles for people who inject drugs, as a means to reduce the spread of HIV, hepatitis C and other bacterial infections.

Volunteers would be involved in registering independent pharmacies across Rockland County in a New York State Department of Health program that would authorize these pharmacies to dispense hypodermic needles without a prescription. Volunteers would be traveling across Rockland County, so a car is preferred.
