Support Package


When possible, NASEN provides program support packages (PSPs), These packages are intended to support newly emerging syringe service programs or resource-lacking programs with the very basic of harm reduction supplies to assist in the beginning stages of developing their programs.

Please note that program support package applications must be completed in full with a non P.O. Box ship-to address and current contact information. All applicants will receive a follow-up email with information on the status of their program application. Please only submit one application per program in a two year period. Waitlists may apply due to the availability of funding.

1. NASEN publishes a US syringe Exchange Directory that is distributed to other programs for the purposes of networking, collaboration, and directing participants who are traveling or moving.
2. The American Foundation for AIDS Research (amfAR) publishes a yearly syringe exchange map that shows cities that have an operating exchange.
3. The Beth Israel Medical Survey is currently the only collection and source of National Syringe Exchange data for the United States. This survey is a key component and tool in lifting the federal ban on funding syringe exchange. The Dave Purchase Survey, formally known as the Beth Isreal Medical Survey, is currently the only collection and source of national syringe exchange data for the United States. This survey is akey component and tool in lifting the federal ban on fundig syringe exchanges.
4. NASEN occasionally collaborates with individuals and/or organizations conducting research regarding syringe exchange/harm reduction efforts in the United States (e.g., Don Des Jarlais, PhD. of New York University/Beth Israel/Mt Sinai to conduct the biennial Dave Purchase Memorial National Survey of Syringe Exchange Projects).
