Marc Koska, OBE

FOUNDER & Trustee

Marc spent part of his early twenties crewing boats in the Caribbean and creating models to be used at crime scenes. A life-changing moment came when he read an article about the predicted spread of HIV and AIDS through the transmission of blood-borne diseases via syringe re-use. His interest was sparked and Marc has devoted the last 25 years of his life passionately to injection safety.

In 2006, Marc launched the SafePoint Trust to inform, raise awareness, and push for the adoption of universal standards, especially in the developing world where the problem is most acute. Marc and his wife Anna have three children and live in East Sussex. Read more about Marc here.
