Specifications include, but are not limited to: The SFDPH Population Health Division, Community Health Equity and Promotion (CHEP) is soliciting proposals to support Syringe Access and Disposal Services to populations disproportionately impacted by HIV infection. Syringe access is a highly effective and costeffective HIV and viral Hepatitis prevention strategy. Syringe access and distribution efforts across the U.S. have curbed the spread of infectious diseases like HIV and viral Hepatitis and reduced the likelihood that people who inject drugs (PWID) develop other bacterial infections and poor vein health1. Oneforone exchanges and other policies that limit the number of syringes that people can access at one time make it more likely that people will reuse, or share injection drug equipment.1, 2 Syringe exchange also reduces needlesharing (an HIV risk) and does not increase drug use. 3 SFPDH began formal financial support of syringe exchange programs in 1992 after the San Francisco Board of Supervisors and Mayor of San Francisco declared a public health emergency; this came after years of grassroots exchanges. Since that time, syringe access and disposal services have become a cornerstone of HIV prevention services in the City and approximately 20,000 PWIDs access syringe services annually, an effort credited for decreasing new HIV infections among injection drug users. As syringe access efforts have increased, so has the need for increased organization and oversight as well as coordination with and accountability to community and government entities. The result is a multipartner service system, sanctioned by the State of California, performed by communitybased organizations receiving authorization by the SFDPH. In addition, the SFDPH will provide a Rapid Response Clean Team that will work in collaboration with the services funded through this solicitation to coordinate and strengthen syringe disposal efforts in San Francisco.
