POZ Magazine: Free Crack Pipes for HIV Prevention in Seattle

The People’s Harm Reduction Alliance, a Seattle-based nonprofit group, has started a new program that hands out free crack pipes to reduce HIV transmission, Hip-Hop Wired reports. The group claims cuts on the mouth from broken pipes contribute to HIV transmission. The group also runs a needle exchange program for intravenous drug users. Studies support needle exchange programs for HIV prevention, officials said, but no similar studies exist for distributing free crack pipes.

HIV, Development and HOPE – thoughts of a Catholic priest

Being a Roman - Catholic priest and working in the fields of HIV and social development in Africa has its challenges. You will find stories and reflections about my work, about the church, South Africa and Africa, about politics and whatever triggers my interest. You are most welcome to leave a comment or to get in touch with me. Blogging means to initiate thoughts and discussions and for the writer to formulate what is loosely running around in the heart and mind in need of being sorted and spoken out.
