Abstract/Summary This document provides a summary of research on illicit drug use during the 1990s. Topics covered are epidemiology of illicit drug use in Australia (prevalence and patterns among the general population and high risk groups – youth, women, indigenous Australians, prisoners, gay communities, homeless persons, and cultural minorities), antecedents and risk factors for illicit drug use (biological, psychosocial, and contextual factors), drug related harms (mortality and morbidity, and adverse health effects), interventions to reduce drug-related harms (media, education, legislation, needle exchanges, injecting rooms, and treatments), and an overview of current (1998) illicit drug research.
Additional Notes commissioned by the NHMRC as background information for the Strategic Research Development Committee's Illicit Drug Research Program
