    The number of people in England using syringes and needles to inject illegal drugs is falling, the best available evidence suggests. Figures from the National Drug Treatment Monitoring System (NDTMS ) reveal that fewer drug users are injecting, especially heroin users. Data from the Health Protection Agency (HPA) also shows the number sharing needles and syringes has declined, a likely consequence of less injecting drug-use overall.


  • Initiation to heroin injecting among heroin users in Sydney, Australia: cross sectional survey

    Posted on July 13th, 2009 TimB No comments

    Heroin injection is associated with health and social problems including hepatitis C virus (HCV) transmission. Few studies have examined the circumstances surrounding initiation to heroin injecting, especially current users initiating others. The current study aimed to examine the age of first heroin use and injection; administration route of first heroin use; relationship to initiator; the initiation of others among a group of heroin users; and to examine these factors in relation to HCV status and risk.
