Staying Safe: What can research about people who inject drugs tell us about how to avoid hepatitis C in the long-term? Next generation hepatitis C prevention strategies

Sam Friedman of the National Development and Research Institutes Inc.. New York, designed the original Staying Safe project. The underpinning idea of Staying Safe has been to explore the strategies used by people who have injected for long periods but have not been exposed to hepatitis C infection with the view to developing innovative intervention strategies.

Since then, work has been done in many sites around the world, including St Petersburg, Valencia, Prague, London, Sydney and Melbourne. New York has since received funding for and conducted a prevention trial in order to enhance the skills of people who inject drugs to avoid exposure to HIV/hepatitis C.

This seminar will showcase work from London, Sydney and New York.

This event will be chaired by Lisa Maher of The Kirby Institute, University of New South Wales
