Implementing the Syringe Services Guidance
What does the new CDC Syringe Services Guidance mean for community based organizations (CBOs) in the fight against HIV?
How do jurisdictions get approved to use Federal funds for syringe services?
What can and can’t you do with Federal funds?
The expert panel of presenters broke down the available guidance from HHS, CDC, and HRSA into easy-to understand and actionable terms and demonstrated how to use your own program data to build a compelling case needed to justify the use of federal funds for syringe programs. Participants heard from organizations at the heart of the Indiana outbreak and other communities who are building strong partnerships with their health departments needed to effectively address the HIV and harm reduction needs in their communities.
