Scott County & the Case for Needle Exchange
By: Marcus Hopkins, Blogger

The past week in the state of Indiana has been, if nothing else, hectic. The signing of the legislature’s “Religious Freedom Restoration Act” bill has largely overshadowed a considerably more pressing issue - a sudden outbreak of HIV infections in a single county related to injection drug use.

In Scott County, Indiana, a mere five unique cases of HIV infection are reported (on average), every year; that number has seen a dramatic increase to 81 unique infections. This type of mass infection is no longer commonplace, as injection drug (ID) use accounts for a very small number of new HIV infections, nationally, but it does spell trouble, not only for residents in and around Scott County, Indiana, but in every area in the country with a high incidence of ID use and abuse.
