Literature Review and Consultation on Peer Distribution of Needles and Syringes

Project aimed to identify: where and how peer distribution currently is practiced, what are the legislative and policy frameworks in which peer distribution operates, what evidence is there on the impacts of peer distribution on access, examples of adverse effects on peer distribution on established needle and syringe programs, and whether peer distribution is driven through government NSPs, non-governmental NSPs, or through Peer Organisations.
