User-to-User: Peer Delivered Syringe Exchange in New York City provides an analysis of a syringe access model in New York that trains injection drug users (IDUs) to conduct secondary syringe exchange with members of their social networks and other contacts.
Drawing upon findings from several methods – including focus groups, qualitative interviews, and a quantitative survey of syringe exchange programs – we offer a series of recommendations to support and increase widespread implementation of PDSE and similar secondary syringe exchange models.
For additional information, episode #27 in HRC’s podcast series highlights findings from the report and conversations with several PDSE workers. You can access the podcast here.
