Our Partnerships

One organization or one community alone cannot achieve our vision of health justice. Working in partnership with other community organizations, local public health agencies, and diverse coalitions is critical to achieve our mission.

We partner regionally, nationally and internationally with the goal of lifting up organizations rooted in communities that support our vision of health justice.

Case Study: Syringe Access Collaborative

In 2018, we served thousands of people who use drugs — many experiencing homelessness or housing insecurity — with critical health and syringe access services through our collaboration with Glide, Homeless Youth Alliance, San Francisco Drug Users’ Union and St. James Infirmary as part of the Syringe Access Collaborative.

With funding from the San Francisco Department of Public Health (SFDPH) Community Health Equity & Promotion Section and in partnership with the Street Medicine team and other SFDPH departments, we substantially increased our street-based outreach, safer disposal services, low-threshold medication-assisted treatment, substance use counseling and treatment referrals, overdose prevention and naloxone distribution and hepatitis C testing and treatment.

We are grateful to our Syringe Access Collaborative partners for continuing to prioritize the health and dignity of people who inject drugs and use substances in our community with passion and with empathy.
