Webinar Recording: Working with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Communities to address methamphetamine use and eliminate sexually transmissible infections

May 6, 2022

Cracks In the Ice have recently held a webinar titled “Working with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Communities to address methamphetamine use and eliminate sexually transmissible infections”.  The webinar is now available to watch online. Professor James Ward, Director of the Poche Centre for Indigenous Health at The University of Queensland and Dr Rachel Reilly, Senior Research Fellow at the Aboriginal Health Equity Unit, South Australian Health and Medical Research Institute (SAHMRI) talked about two research projects that seek to make a positive difference in Aboriginal sexual health and methamphetamine use: “Novel interventions to address methamphetamine use in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Communities” (NIMAC) and the “Ending-ST”’ project. The presenters talked about some of the important features of working appropriately with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities, and some of the ways these projects are seeking to make a positive difference by using a lens that takes into account the broader context of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander determinants of health.
