Injecting drug use and associated harms among Aboriginal Australians

 

Overview

This project was undertaken by a consortium consisting of Anex and the National Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisation (NACCHO). With this project the Australian National Council on Drugs (ANCD) was interested in obtaining an understanding of the dimensions and characteristics of Indigenous injecting drug use and its associated harms including gaps in knowledge and whether there were specific issues that exist for Indigenous people. The project focused on the implications of the findings in relation to Indigenous injecting drug use, the risks, associated harms, self harm and injury amongst Indigenous Australians.

The report on the project has been completed and was released on 27 April 2011. Copies can be obtained from the ANCD Secretariat or the ANCD website.
