I'm sure that most people who read this blog know what UYB means, but for anyone stumbling across it randomly what are unsure its Up Your Bum.
Although by most needle exchange workers UYB is a recognised tool for harm reduction there is still some confusion and disagreement on when and why to give this advice. Or even if we should give it in the first place. Hopefully this should answer some of the more common questions and give some tips for workers who want to give the advice but haven't yet felt comfortable doing it.
