Abstract

Disparities in HIV health care continue to exist among New York City's marginalized populations. We describe the evolution and development of a unique collaborative program that blends harm reduction and medical care. This program addresses disparities and needs of a particularly marginalized population: unstably housed substance users with HIV infection.
