This report concerns the study of the inter-professional networks of actors that facilitate access to healthcare and prevention for people in precarious situations. This type of organization is constituted spontaneously and in a militant spirit, between professionals and structures in a given territory. The aim is to provide an organized response to problems relating to health, faced by people in precarious situations. There is no typical structure defining an RSP.

One of the objectives of the study is to account for the degree to which the phenomenon of NTU is taken into account by RSP. It appears that:
- The actors interviewed do not all know what NTU is. Their discourse and the documents on RSP studied show that the terms access to rights and/or access to healthcare are used more readily than the term NTU.
- Yet the creation of an RSP is itself a response to the phenomenon of NTU in so far as this type of organization takes into account the inadequacy of the public offer to meet the needs of people in precarious situations.
- The activities developed by the RSP make it possible to overcome two obstacles: personal (related to people in precarious situations) and institutional (related to a system or organization which, due to its complexity, leads to difficulties in understanding and/or dissuasion). They can be considered as preventive or curative activities.
