Blog: Goosby Says PEPFAR Funds Will Be Used for Syringe Exchange

December 24, 2009

The "Housing Works" blog looks at the repeal of the "federal ban on syringe exchange funding" for domestic HIV/AIDS efforts. According to the blog, while the ban didn't apply to global HIV/AIDS programs, "U.S. Global AIDS Coordinator Director Eric Goosby said now that the ban has been lifted he is working to redirect PEPFAR dollars to provide funding for syringe exchange. 'I've been involved in working with injection drug users for a long time, and my view is that the evidence strongly supports the value of needle and syringe programs as part of a comprehensive prevention portfolio,' Goosby said" (Scholl, 12/17).
