PSA: Find free hormone injection supplies at UBC

The AMS is offering free hormone injection supplies.

Through AMS Peer Support and the Sexual Assault Support Centre (SASC), community members can access safe supplies for gender-affirming hormone therapy.

“Being able to access safe supplies … greatly reduces the risk of injury or infection associated with re-using or sharing injection supplies,” wrote the AMS in an Instagram post

The AMS is offering both subcutaneous and intramuscular injection kits. These kits include sterile needles, sterile syringe barrels, alcohol swabs and sharps containers. 

Community members can anonymously order kits or individual items in-person or online from the AMS Peer Support office (NEST 3125) and SASC (NEST 3130). Supplies can be picked up at these offices during business hours.
