Drug health harms: national intelligence

Briefings on the health harms associated with drug use based on presentations and discussions at the meeting of the national intelligence network.



These briefings for directors of public health, commissioners, drug treatment services and needle and syringe programmes provide information and intelligence on blood-borne viruses, bacterial infections, mental and physical health harms and drug-related deaths from meetings of the national intelligence network.

They aim to inform commissioning and service provision to improve local services.
