To avoid the health risks associated with taking drugs, it is safer not to inject or to use alternative methods of taking drugs. However, some people are not in this position so the following topics are important:

  • The supply of Naloxone to the risk of reduce drug related deaths
  • Overdose awareness advice
  • Access to Hepatitis and HIV testing
  • Access to Hepatitis A/B inoculation
  • Provision of a range of sterile injecting equipment and paraphernalia
  • Provision of safer injecting information and other health promotion information
  • Sexual health information and condoms as some blood borne viruses can also be transmitted to sexual partners
