Hepatitis Australia and the Australian Injecting & Illicit Drug Users League (AIVL) is proud to announce that there is now a dedicated resource for people who use performance and image-enhancing drugs (PIEDs).
People take PIEDs with the intention of changing their physical appearance and enhancing their sporting performance. These substances can include anabolic steroids, peptides and hormones.
Among the reasons people use these substances are the following:
Increasing the size and definition of muscles
Reducing water retention
Reducing body fat
Increasing strength and endurance
Helping the body recover quicker from injury.
The website was produced by Hepatitis Australia with support from the Australian Injecting & Illicit Drug Users League (AIVL). Development of the site was made possible with grant funding from the Australian Government Department of Health.
Thank you to the community members who provided confidential input and feedback on the development of this site.
