The team at CSAW Health acknowledges that there are limited opportunities for dissemination of information and discussions in the HR field across state, territory and national boundaries. To increase these opportunities we have approached key leaders in the Harm Reduction field and invited them to be involved in the Mentor Program through which interested members can contact highly-regarded professionals in this field with their questions.

"Epidemics of HIV among injecting drug users (IDUs) have been prevented, even where there is no decrease in drug use or injecting. Countries which have been most successful in this are countries which have adopted the public health approach known as ‘harm reduction’. Because it is the sharing of contaminated injecting equipment which is responsible for the transmission of HIV among IDUs, decreasing this sharing must be the prime target for prevention efforts. ‘Manual for reducing drug related harm in Asia’ Ed.
