    HIV/AIDS & STD PROGRAM

    Outreach Center

    Outreach Center / Needle Exchange • 324-1686

    The HIV/AIDS program works to prevent or reduce behaviors that transmit HIV by providing outreach services to individuals at highest risk – injection drug users, men having sex with men (MSM), and individuals engaging in unprotected sex with HIV+ persons.

    Needle Exchange Fact Sheet

    Outreach services are provided by public health professionals through two locations:

    • Outreach Center – 1101 W. College Avenue, Room 155 (please use southwest entrance). Open Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from 3-5 p.m. and on Wednesday from 3-7 p.m.

    Outreach services include:

    • Needle exchange – free one for one exchange of used needles for clean needles is offered to injection drug users. Since the program’s launch in 1991, thousands of needles have been exchanged each year in Spokane County as part of our efforts to prevent the spread of HIV, Hepatitis B and C.
    • Condom distribution – thousands of free condoms are distributed each year throughout Spokane County.
    • Other HIV prevention supplies – bleach kits, lubricant, alcohol pads and cotton swabs.
    • Referral and education – public health professionals are continuously educating clients about HIV/AIDS and frequently make referrals to other community services including drug treatment programs, housing resources, support groups and services providing meals for the homeless or near homeless.
