I hope ALL of us will be, after this event, be 1. communicating with Mayor Wu that the reduction of services at and around EC is not consistent with sound public health practices and 2. Letting their state reps and senators know that Safe Consumption Services (H 2088) needs to be available ASAP

Are the services we are told that people are being Transported to relevant and/or at a sufficient level to respond to the need?
Jim Stewart
01:09:05
I am hearing that they are not and just a way for city to create the illusion they are doing something besides shutting down EC

Why aren't providers challenging Mayor Wu's punitive approach to recent developments in and around Mass & Cass?

Many folks on this call are involved with us in trying to develop a trial of cabotegravir long-acting PrEP in PWID, but I would note this is incredibly complicated (in terms of monitoring and balancing the risks of resistance). So this may be an important tool, but almost certainly not a silver bullet.
