- Education and testing for hepatitis C (HCV)
- Harm reduction education
- Targeted counseling
- Overdose prevention information and resources
AIDS Outreach/Syringe Exchange
The AIDS Outreach Project/Snohomish County Syringe Exchange is a free 1-to-1 needle exchange program to help stop the spread of HIV/AIDS and hepatitis C. Here you can anonymously exchange used needles for clean ones. You will receive one clean needle for each used needle turned in.
Snohomish Health District's Viral Hepatitis Outreach program staff often participate in the syringe exchange to offer the following services:
- Free hepatitis C testing and hepatitis A and B vaccinations for those who qualify
- Other harm reduction supplies and advice, such as free condoms, resource referrals, and information
