VAADA Monthly Newsletter | Edition 17 | May 2024

Welcome to the latest edition of The VAADA Monthly! We are excited to share many updates from the sector and from our ourselves here at VAADA.

In this month’s edition, we are discussing our Press Release around the 2024-25 State Budget, including the pre-budget announcement of $95m to address AOD harms in the community. We also share our Drug Checking Principles of Practice Paper collaboration between VAADA and HRVic.

There are a number of updates within the family violence and workforce development space and some interesting research and report reading, including perspectives on drug checking services from people who use drugs and the 2023 Annual Overdose Report.
