International Overdose Awareness Day (31 August)

The event was chaired by Hepatitis Scotland's Lead Officer, and the speakers included (click link for presentation):

The event was attended by over 130 delegates from across Scotland, which looked at the evidence for, and the practical implications of implementing, supervised consumption rooms and heroin assisted treatment. The aim of this conference was to increase knowledge and influence and enhance professional and political support for these measures, starting in NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde. Acquiring HIV through injecting drug use is now the most prevalent route of new infection of HIV in Scotland for the first time since the 1980s. There was excellent involvement by many invitees on the day and evaluation was very good.
