WHACK

Magazine

WHACK is an integral part of Victoria's community of people who use drugs.  Our mission to advance the health and human rights of people who use drugs by sharing information, supporting and empowering each other.

Currently WHACK magazine comes out, IN PRINT ONLY, EVERY  QUARTER - Spring, Summer, Autumn and WInter. 

Due to increases in printing and postage prices and staff workloads, HRVic does it's best to keep to this timeline but can occasionally be held up.

Please be patient when ordering more WHACKs for distribution and consider our back catalogue if you've run out.  

By providing our community with a free platform to be able to express our thoughts and feelings

and that delivers factual, relevant information about issues that directly relate to our lives including up to date information about substances, and reducing the harms associated with drug use – in particular reducing the risk of HIV, hep C and hep B.

Due to the diverse & marginalised nature of our community, we do our best to present the info in such a way as to have wide appeal & lasting impact & to represent the different perspectives of a wide range of contributors –

from peers to researchers to carers and allies to workers and back to peers..

The information takes on an array of forms- from the informative to the ridiculous – and everything in between. 

We are constantly on the search for new ways to share our harm reduction messaging and to extend the reach of that message- all while staying true to our roots.
