Bookmarks with Kathryn Leafe

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 2:25 pm on 19 December 2018

This week, the New Zealand Needle Exchange Programme celebrated the 31st anniversary of the law that makes it possible for it to exist. Every year it distributes three million clean needles to intravenous drug users to prevent the spread of blood-borne diseases, and works with those people to improve their lives.

Its executive director Kathryn Leafe has had a long and interesting journey to the job. She's our Bookmarks guest today.
