Nebraska DHHS is funded by CDC to recruit and train injection safety champions at every location in Nebraska where injections and IV infusions are administered.
In 2016, Nebraska was named one of the partner states for the “One and Only” national safe injections campaign. The “One and Only” campaign provides Nebraska DHHS direct access to subject matter experts and additional resources for this initiative. Visit the campaign's Nebraska Partner Page to learn more.
