Drug and Alcohol Office (WA) (2008)

Aboriginal blood-borne virus scoping project literature review.

Perth: Drug and Alcohol Office (WA)

The 'Aboriginal Blood-Borne Virus Scoping Project' was undertaken to investigate the enablers and barriers of accessing needle and syringe programs in Kalgoorlie and the south-west for Aboriginal people who inject drugs (APWIDs). The 'Sexual Health and Blood Borne Virus Program' from the Department of Health (WA) funded the Alcohol and Drug Office to conduct the scoping project.

The scoping project was undertaken in response to the National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Sexual Health Strategy 2005-2008 (2005), identifying HIV/AIDS and Hepatitis B and C as significant health issues for Indigenous people who inject drugs, and the need to strengthen harm reduction programs in this area, as well as recent data identifying a higher number of HIV diagnoses as a result of injecting drug use among the Indigenous population compared to the non-Indigenous population, and greater rates of Hepatitis B and C diagnoses as a result of injecting drug use among the Indigenous population compared to the non-Indigenous population.

The 'Aboriginal Blood-Borne Virus Scoping Project Literature Review' was undertaken as a compendium to the project. The review examined recent national and local studies of Indigenous injecting drug use and associated harm reduction strategies, and related projects and initiatives.
