Modeling the Impact of Supervised Consumption Sites on HIV and HCV Transmission among People who Inject Drugs in Three California Counties

October 11, 2023

Supervised consumption sites (SCS) are harm reduction programs in which people who inject drugs (PWID) bring their previously obtained drugs to consume in a supervised setting. We modeled the potential impact of SCS implementation on HIV and HCV incidence among PWID in three California counties: San Francisco, Los Angeles, and San Diego and found that SCS could be an important intervention to enable HCV elimination and ending the HIV epidemic among PWID in California.
