""Between 1991 and 2000, needle and syringe programs were estimated to prevent around 25,000 cases of HIV and 21,000 cases of hepatitis C, an economic saving of between $2.4 and $7.7 billion for an investment of $150 million."The Prevention Of Substance Use, Risk And Harm In Australia A Review Of The Evidence  (Loxley, Toumbourou, Stockwell, 2004)"


"Epidemics of HIV among injecting drug users (IDUs) have been prevented, even where there is no decrease in drug use or injecting.  Countries which have been most successful in this are countries which have adopted the public health approach known as ‘harm reduction’.   Because it is the sharing of contaminated injecting equipment which is responsible for the transmission of HIV among IDUs, decreasing this sharing must be the prime target for prevention efforts.  ‘Manual for reducing drug related harm in Asia’ Ed. Nick Crofts (Centre for Harm Reduction, Victoria, Australia)"
