Spanish term or phrase: Equipos - teams or equipment here??? (Urgent again...sorry!)
De acuerdo con diversas directrices del Consejo de Europa, “en países donde, en la comunidad, exista disponibilidad de jeringuillas y agujas estériles para inyectores de drogas, debería considerarse la posibilidad de proporcionar equipos de inyección higiénicos a aquellos presos que los demanden”.

Explanation:
“en países donde, en la comunidad, exista disponibilidad de jeringuillas y agujas estériles para inyectores de drogas, debería considerarse la posibilidad de proporcionar equipos de inyección higiénicos a aquellos presos que los demanden”.

In countries where sterilised syringes and needles are made available to drug users, the possibility should be considered of supplying, to those prisoners who request them, hygenic injection equipment/materials.

It's definitely the 'equipment' use, and in the sense of a 'set' of individual items

clean injection unit


Explanation:

I suggest the word "unit" instead of equipment or team.

The word unit is very much used in medical contexts.

Good luck!
