Injection Drug Use and Health Care: A Research Month Panel

This panel is a presentation of research conducted by an academic/community partnership that focused on people who use injection drugs.  Last year alone the needle exchange distributed 600,000 needles across Cape Breton.  Recent research focuses on the difficulties injection drug users are experiencing accessing health care.  The researchers have interviewed 125 Sydney residents on issues related to their health care needs and reluctance to seek help.

Presenters will include:
