Healthcare is a human right and public good!
It should be guaranteed to everyone no matter where they live or how much money they have. This is particularly true for rural communities which are hardest hit by the opioid epidemic and suffer with high rates of HIV, hepatitis C, and substance use disorders.
Two bills in the Alabama legislature (SB235 and HB444) could make way for legal syringe exchange, a powerful intervention that would allow community organizations to care for their people and better respond to this public health crisis.
