Is your harm reduction program looking for ways to improve access to your services, reduce costs and reduce stigma?
Harm Reduction Supply Dispenser
Harm reduction supply dispensing machines, which provide a variety of health-related products and education to people who use drugs, are a relatively new way to expand the reach of such programs in the United States. These machines can help reduce the transmission of infectious diseases, including HIV and hepatitis C, prevent overdoses and promote long-term recovery to people who use drugs.
Why Harm Reduction Supply Dispensers?
Harm reduction supply vending machines are a low-barrier public health service offering access to free safer use supplies. These machines reduce the health risks associated with using drugs and can be accessed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
With a harm reduction supply vending machines, hygiene kits and toiletries, safe sex kits, and harm reduction supplies, such as overdose reversal medications and sterile syringes can be securely dispensed to minimize drug-use-related risks.
Harm Reduction Vending Machines can contain items such as:
- Fentanyl Test Strip Kits
- Pregnancy Tests
- Safer Sex Kits (condoms and lubrication)
- Harm Reduction Kits (clean needles / syringes, alcohol prep pads, cotton, clean water, band-aids, antibiotic ointment, tourniquets, cooker/caps, and sharps disposal box)
Provide harm reduction supplies to individuals where they need them and when they need them
By eliminating face-to-face interactions and being available 24/7, harm reduction vending machines can get supplies to the people who need them most, where they need them, and on their schedule. For many people, the ability to get harm reduction supplies from the machine without having to interact with another person makes them accessible.
A harm reduction dispensing machine is a great way for harm reduction advocates and providers to promote safe injection, safe smoking, and safe sex within their communities.
