FEATURE
Late last month, the Indiana Department of Health issued a declaration allowing the state’s first ever long-term needle exchange program. The program in Scott County is intended to slow the spread of HIV there. Needle exchanges have been outlawed in Indiana for decades. Many in state government, including Governor Mike Pence, have long opposed the programs. That changed somewhat earlier this year, when Pence approved a month-long needle exchange in Scott County to deal with the unprecedented HIV outbreak there. Now that the state legislature has passed a law allowing the program to stay in place for at least a year, there is still debate in Indiana over the use of needle exchanges. WFHB correspondent Kara Tullman has that story.
