Safer Sharps in a Dangerous World
Syringe reuse is a worldwide problem. So is accidental needlestick injury. Both problems could be dramatically reduced if all syringes were truly and effectively safety-engineered and designed to preclude reuse. In a sense, accidental needlestick injuries are reuse, albeit unintentional. Both intentional syringe reuse and needlestick injuries can transmit hepatitis B virus (HBV), hepatitis C virus (HCV), HIV, and many other bloodborne pathogens from a contaminated donor to a recipient.
