Protecting the Health of Injection Drug Users - Free Health Lecture

Consider these facts:

• People who inject drugs frequently experience or witness an overdose.

• Injection drug use accounts for about 1 in 10 new HIV/AIDS diagnoses.

Reducing the risk of overdose or HIV transmission among those who inject drugs needs a combination of approaches. One proven and effective strategy is for drug users to self-administer medication.

Come learn how drug users can take positive steps to protect their health by taking medications such as NARCAN® (naloxone) to reverse an overdose or pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) to prevent HIV/AIDS. Then hear ways to advocate for medication access for yourself or a loved one.
