A second line service has also been created to provide psychological follow-up and respond to identified needs.

The mobile team, also composed of various organisations, intervenes in non-accredited structures (such as squats) and accredited structures in terms of awareness-raising, prevention and control of infections, health promotion and referral to psycho-social-medical care if necessary.
