This neighborhood has the highest HIV rate in the industrialized world. 1 out of every 3 residents has HIV and 90% have Hepatitis C. These statistics are on par with Botswana.

The result was the most criticized Government approved drug policy in decades. INSITE - North America's first legal, Government funded Supervised Safe Injection Site was born.
