|Description:||The Orange County Needle Exchange Program - Undergraduate Division at UCI focuses on fostering undergraduate volunteers passionate about harm reduction for the underserved community of intravenous drug users and the whole OC community through the OC Needle Exchange Program. We aim to collaborate with UCI medical students and the OC community to prevent the further spread of bloodborne pathogens through the reusing and sharing of potentially contaminated syringes and provide proper disposal of needles to reduce the appearances of used syringes in public areas. We will effectively carry out our mission by volunteering at the OCNEP, hosting educational and outreach projects for the community, raising awareness on campus and the OC community, and raising funds for the program.|
