Serving People Where They Are: Strengthening the Social Safety Net Through Syringe Services Programs

Tuesday, February 16, 2021 12:00 - 2:00 P.M. ET

Syringe services programs provide care without judgment, and connect individuals to infectious disease prevention and treatment, mental and behavioral health services, medication for opioid use disorder, reproductive health services, housing assistance, job placement, and support networks.

During this two-hour institute, participants will:

  • Learn more about issues that intersect with substance use, including mental/behavioral health, reproductive health, homelessness, and economic security

  • Understand the role that syringe services programs play in U.S. healthcare

  • Hear from leaders of three syringe services programs operating in the U.S.

  • Engage in dialogue with leaders supporting this critical work, including AIDS United, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Comer Family Foundation, Elton John AIDS Foundation, and Levi Strauss Foundation
