NEW Terumo Fits – TIPS n TRICKS


Losing an old friend is never easy.

Harm Reduction Victoria knows that we are all feeling the loss of the old USA made, Terumo 1ml syringes

and as such have come up with some helpful tips and tricks to help get us all through the hard times of having no choice but to use the new Korean made Terumo syringes, safely.

The general consensus is that the new 1ml Terumo fits suck .

For all sorts of reasons.

At present, however, they are all that’s available and whether we like it or not, we don’t really have a choice but to use them.

Until the Department of Health and Human Services finds a more user-friendly alternative to offer us, Harm Reduction Victoria (HRVic) have come up with the following tips and suggestions to help make using the new poorly made needles/syringes as safe and as easy as possible.
