NEW NALOXONE POSTERS
NALOXONE -AMPOULES- INSTRUCTION FLYER (A4)
Naloxone is a fast acting medication that reverses the effects of
an opioid overdose. Side effects are extremely rare however, you may feel the temporary symptoms of opioid withdrawal. Some
people may know naloxone by it’s commonly known brand name Narcan®. It is the same medicine that ambulances carry for opioid overdoses.
Naloxone CAN NOT be used for benzo, GHB,
methamphetamine, alcohol etc overdoses!
It ONLY works on natural & synthetic OPIOIDS ie. heroin, morphine, methadone, codeine etc.
NALOXONE -NYXOID (NASAL SPRAY)- INSTRUCTION FLYER (A4)

HEP C TREATMENT 'EZY CARD' RESOURCE
Hepatitis C treatment has changed significantly and quickly over the past 4 years.
Keeping punters, clients and patients informed has never been more important.
If we are to reach our elimination goals here in Australia, we all need to do our part to dispell the myths and clear up any misguiding rumours around the new treatments so that people realise that they CAN do treatment!
Harm Reduction Victoria and the EC Project have collaborated -with much input from our peers- on this NEW pocket sized Hep C Treatment resource that answers client's questions and puts minds at ease. Doubling as an appointment card, Drs and clinicians can write appointment details on the resource itself to keep the ball rolling or start it off!
RACK N' ROLL SNORTER'S RESOURCE
The 'Rack N' Roll' business card sized resource about snorting substances is now available to our supporters, stakeholders and partners in harm reduction. The card is made of fine balance of a light but sturdy weight. Stiff enough that it can be used to "rack up" or cut finer and put into lines- substances that are insufflated or snorted and flexible enough to roll into a tube so it can be used to snort through. All this practicality PLUS the harm reducing info and tips to make the snorting experience less risky hence- more enjoyable.
A winner with the punters.
Hepatitis Vaccination Cards
Hepatitis A Resource for PWID and Rough Sleepers
Resource from DHHS, Hepatitis Victoria, Thorne Harbour Health and Harm Reduction Victoria in response to the 2019-2020 hepatitis A outbreak in Melbourne.
This resource provides prevention information for Hep A, Hep, B and C along with COVID -19 and is designed to sit alongside the Mobile Immunisation, Health and Harm Reduction Service (MIHS), which is a partnership between The Salvation Army: Access Health, St Vincent’s Health and The Burnet Institute.
It's purpose is to enhance access to Hep A, Hep B and influenza immunisation as well as health information, referral and harm reduction services for people experiencing homelessness and/or people who use drugs (especially people who inject drugs).
MIHS can attend social programs, meals programs, emergency accommodation and housing sites, harm reduction services and health services to enhance access to immunisation and harm reduction.
Note: The MIHS will not attend services that already have their own immunisation services.
If you have immunisation services and would like access to free Hep A vaccinations for the target cohort, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
