New Zealand was the first country in the world to introduce a national state sponsored Needle Exchange Programme.

Today the programme operates from Whangarei through to Invercargill through a network of dedicated outlets and pharmacy based exchanges.

We distribute over 3 million needles each year. In addition to support and advice on harm reduction we also collect returns and ensure the safe disposal of equipment used for injecting drug use.
