Syringe Service Programming

The Health Foundation of Greater Indianapolis began supporting Syringe Service Programs in the State of Indiana in following the passage of a State Law in 2015 which allowed County Health Departments the discretion to declare a public health emergency related to an epidemic increase in the transmission of HIV and/or HEP-C directly related to injection drug use and apply to the Indiana State Department of Health (ISDH) to operate a Syringe Service Program (SSP).

Since 2015, the Health Foundation has provided $150,000 in funding to 8 Indiana counties to support the purchase of hard reduction supplies to help curb the spread of HIV/AIDS, Hepatitis C, and other communicable bloodborne pathogens.
