Website Review: Injecting Advice v2.0
At a glance:
- Regular podcasts
- A wealth of articles
- Downloadable resources
- Discussion forums
The Injecting Advice website is a great resource and a fantastic example of how the internet can be utilised by grass roots harm reduction advocates to develop and disseminate quality harm reduction information. The brainchild of a needle exchange program worker in the U.K., the Injecting Advice website contains a wealth of harm reduction articles and resources aimed at both drug users and harm reduction workers. Visitors to the site have the opportunity to become member and take part in discussion forums to network and share knowledge with others. Currently the site maintains a membership of over 400.
In addition to all of these great resources Injecting Advice regularly releases the “Hooked” podcast, which discusses issues pertinent to harm reduction. Followers of the site can keep abreast of up and coming developments on the website via both the Injecting Advice Twitter and Facebook accounts.
The Injecting Advice Website is a clean attractive site that demonstrates what can be done to share harm reduction information to a wide audience with very little resources. The site offers a good balance of information and interactivity and is a welcome addition to the resources available to harm reduction workers online.
