Needle and Syringe Programs in Australia: Peer-led Best Practice (the Guide)

September 14, 2018 jasonh

As part of its 2017-18 work plan, AIVL sought to develop a Needle and Syringe Program (NSP) Best Practice Guide that detailed the needs of people who inject drugs, service delivery models across Australia and practice considerations for service providers that are informed by peer experience and led by peer intelligence. This project built on findings from a National NSP Forum that AIVL held in Sydney in 2015 and from a 2017 literature review that detailed NSP service models and international NSP best practice.

This is the Guide that resulted from the subsequent literature review and consultations following the AIVL National Forum.
