California Clearinghouse FAQs

What is the Clearinghouse?
The California Syringe Exchange Supply Clearinghouse was established in 2016 following the passage of a bill that authorized funding for the establishment of a Clearinghouse to help California SSPs enhance the health and wellness of people who inject drugs. The Clearinghouse aims to increase the organizational stability of California SSPs by ensuring access to harm reduction supplies for authorized SSPs.

Who operates the Clearinghouse?
The Clearinghouse is operated by the North American Syringe Exchange Network (NASEN) in partnership with the California Department of Public Health (CDPH), Center for Infectious Diseases (CID), and Office of AIDS (OA). NASEN is operated by Dave Purchase Project. Dave Purchase Project also operates a syringe service program in Pierce County, WA: Tacoma Needle Exchange.

What do I do if I want an item that’s not on the list?
Email kyle@nasen.org with the item and a short description of why that particular item is important to your participants or team. We compile feedback and review it before each catalog revision. If you have a separate source of funds, you can also purchase the item through the NASEN Buyers Club by emailing orders@nasen.org. They will send your program a separate invoice.
