Solicitation of Interest # 20389 – Provision of Harm Reduction Services Via Telemedicine


The New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH) AIDS Institute (AI) Office of Drug User Health announces the opportunity for a not-for-profit licensed medical practice to increase access to medications for addiction treatment or medications for opioid use disorder (MAT/MOUD). The funded entity will be responsible for providing low-threshold harm reduction services via telemedicine to persons with opioid use disorder/at risk of overdose. The purpose of this opportunity is to expand access to MAT/MOUD and other related harm reduction services across New York State, specifically for areas of the state where there is a lack of available harm reduction and comprehensive medical services available to Persons Who Use Drugs (PWUD), as well as to prevent overdoses and overdose deaths among PWUD in New York State.
