[Correspondence] The global health and equity imperative for safe consumption facilities

The first safe consumption facility (SCF) opened its doors in 1986, in Bern, Switzerland, intending to curb drug overdose-related deaths and prevent other drug-related harm in people who inject drugs (PWID).1 Since then, communities who have adopted the SCF approach have seen decreases in HIV incidence, injection-related litter and disorder, and drug overdose.2,3 Use of SCFs is also associated with uptake of treatment for drug use and other recovery assistance services.4
