Patient Navigation for People Who Use Drugs

In 2019, NASTAD Drug User Health received CDC funding to oversee a demonstration project that would fund syringe services programs (SSPs) to provide patient navigation services for participants. Between 2020 and 2022, eight SSPs around the United States developed and implemented patient navigation services to facilitate engagement with medical and social services for people who use drugs (PWUD).

This microsite contains background, lessons learned through program experiences during the project, and resources for the development and operation of SSP-based patient navigation services.
