Abstract

"The study seeks to analyse the effectiveness of needle and syringe programs in preventing transmission of HIV, and hepatitis C (HCV) in Australia from 1991 (that is from when NSPs were well established in all jurisdictions except Tasmania) to the end of 2000. The study then uses these findings to calculate the return on investment from NSPs from 1991 to 2000."
