Summary

This package is written to help staff who work in Drug Treatment and Rehabilitation Centres develop and deliver staff training and resident education to reduce HIV transmission. It may also be adapted for use in other closed settings but its primary purpose is for use in centres where all residents have used illicit drugs. Inside Out describes precisely the intent of this educational material. It contains HIV harm reduction educational and training materials that, if implemented effectively inside Drug Treatment and Rehabilitation Centres (and other closed settings), can reduce HIV risk behaviour both in closed settings and on the outside when residents return to their communities.
