Canada to test first needle exchange program in a North American prison

The Guardian meldet am 15.05.2018:Program aims to stop the spread of infections such as HIV, Aids and hepatitis C among inmates who are drug users.
The pilot project will be launched in June, in a men’s facility in New Brunswick and a women’s prison in Ontario – both chosen for high rates of injection drug use.
While diabetic inmates have had access to needles for years, this marks the first time drug users will be given similar resources.
