The Ontario HIV Treatment Network (OHTN), supported by the Regional HIV/AIDS Connection and the Thunder Bay Drug Strategy, is undertaking research to assess the feasibility of supervised injection services in London and Thunder Bay, Ontario. Supervised injection services allow people to inject drugs under safe conditions and provide access to sterile injecting equipment.
The study will:
- assess people’s willingness to use supervised injection services
- seek feedback from community members, health care providers, law enforcement officials and government representatives.
The information we collect will determine whether supervised injection services have the potential to address public health and public order goals in London and Thunder Bay, and also help determine how the services might be designed.
