Harm Reduction Technical Assistance

Syringe services programs (SSPs) are a proven effective component of community-based programs preventing the spread of infectious disease from drug use. The National Harm Reduction Technical Assistance Center is designed to strengthen the capacity and improve the performance of SSPs throughout the United States by supporting enhanced technical assistance (TA) to ensure the provision of high-quality, comprehensive harm reduction services.  This TA will strengthen the capacity of organizations to implement comprehensive, sustainable SSPs, improve services provided, and improve national understanding of drug use patterns and access to prevention and intervention services to prevent infectious disease consequences of drug use.
