SIPC Historic Partners

One of SIPC's founding organizations, the HONOReform Foundation, is led by Evelyn McKnight, whose personal experience motivated her to bring attention to, and advocate on behalf of, safe injection practices. Dr. McKnight was infected with hepatitis C virus (HCV) while battling a recurrence of breast cancer in 2000. In total, 99 patients at the oncology clinic became infected with HCV when their provider failed to follow safe injection practices. This was the largest known healthcare-associated outbreak of HCV in U.S. history. HONOReform Foundation, founded in 2006, works from the grassroots level to the legislative level to encourage safety by design, incentive, and education. This group is one of many partners committed to the Safe Injection Practices Coalition and to bringing safer healthcare to everyone.
