Prevention Not Permission

Portsmouth City Health Department

PREVENTION NOT PERMISSION is a syringe exchange program located in Portsmouth, Ohio. It is only the second site in Ohio to exchange used syringes for clean in an effort to prevent the transmission of blood-borne diseases such as HIV and Hepatitis C. Scioto County has the highest rate of Hepatitis C per 100,000 population in Ohio. The time has come to be proactive and not reactive. By initiating a syringe exchange program, we can lower the risks of blood-borne diseases to our community.
