The syringe management program tries to educate society by increasing the capacity and quantity of the syringe disposable centers , providing timely responses to all syringe complaints through a 24 hr help line service, providing staff training in needle and syringe management and expanding the council center services for needle and syringe response.
The benefits to the Council and the education to the wider society in the long-term are likely to outweigh the initial start-up costs of the program, making it a viable investment. The Council would become more cost effective over time by saving on waste management and clean-up services associated with syringe-use. It will also gain a competitive advantage over other organisations, as it will be educating society and acting upon its corporation social responsibility role on an important issue in society. This aspect is more difficult to quantify. The Council becomes more credible and respected by the public and responsive to its needs, thereby maybe facilitating the possibility of the Council engaging in other beneficial projects that can also bring it financial advantages.
