Maine AIDS Group Gets Grant for Syringe Exchange
November 8, 2002
The Eastern Maine AIDS Network has been awarded a grant from the Maine Community AIDS Partnership to continue the only syringe exchange-referral prevention program in eastern and northern Maine. The award was granted based on the success of the program last year, according to Denis Cranson, EMAN executive director. Started in 1993, MCAP's mission is to develop resources to support HIV education, prevention and treatment efforts that address current issues and emerging needs in Maine.Adapted from:
