Alert

Wales has recently seen an increase in Hepatitis C cases. The risk of infections by blood borne viruses such as hepatitis and HIV is high when using shared and non sterile injection equipment. It is not just the syringe itself which poses dangers but also the spoons, filters, water and other paraphernalia used to make up a drug for injection. Protect yourself and others you care about.
