YSPH EMD Seminar: "Modeling the impact of a police education program on drug-related harm"
Certain policing practices, such as syringe confiscation, are a well characterized structural determinant of health among people who inject drugs. From 2015-2016, nearly the entire police force in Tijuana, Mexico received a police education program to align policing with public health principles. This presentation will discuss the impact and cost-effectiveness of this structural intervention on HIV and fatal overdose among people who inject drugs.
