WELCOME

Welcome to Safepoint

SafePoint is a charitable organisation founded with the sole purpose of educating uninformed public on the dangers of receiving unsafe injections. Syringe re-use is the main source of cross-infection in the developing world, infecting innocent people with blood-borne diseases such as HIV and Hepatitis B and C. A syringe is re-used on average 4 times in the developing world, making a trip to your local doctor or healthcare worker a game of Russian roulette.

Under the LifeSaver campaign, SafePoint have created a logo that will become the recognised symbol of a safe injection. Our mission is not just to inform the public and healthcare workers, ensuring they demand and use LifeSaver syringes, but to lobby at ministerial level for a change in legislation.

Implementing such a legislation change and enforcing it, also eliminates the huge financial burden of caring for those infected, not only in terms of hospitalisation and nursing, but in the procurement of medication and long term treatment of patients.

Thank you for visiting the SafePoint website. We welcome your feedback.
