The aim of this project was to use 'rapid assessment procedures' (RAP) to undertake research to assess the practices of Aboriginal injecting drug users in metropolitan Adelaide, South Australia (SA). This project aimed to gather information about injecting practices and issues relating to injecting drug use (IDU) that are important to the Aboriginal community.
A major component of the project was to utilise peer interviewers (Aboriginal people with experience of injecting drug use) to conduct a survey of Aboriginal people who inject drugs. The survey for this project was based on a previous survey that the Aboriginal Drug and Alcohol Council (ADAC) conducted in Murray Bridge, SA.
Information gathered during this project will be used to improve the available knowledge base on Indigenous IDU and inform further development of more appropriate responses and services. The project was funded by the Office of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health (OATSIH) and concluded in August 2003.
