Two reports from the Center for Opioid Safety Education (COSE) at the UW Alcohol & Drug Abuse Institute present an overview of Washington's syringe exchange programs (SEP), and the results of a survey of injection drug user health. The reports are intended to help SEP learn from each other and improve syringe exchange operations in the state. The survey was conducted in King County by Public Health - Seattle & King County, and coordinated across other sites statewide by COSE.
