Sydney Local Health District (SLHD) oversaw the installation of an Automatic Dispensing Machine (ADM) in front of the Redfern Health Centre in February 2013. Kate Reakes, Manager of the Harm Minimisation Program for the Sydney Area Health District provided the following update on the project to REDWatch Spokesperson, Geoff Turnbull.
Revolution: a dramatic and wide-reaching change in conditions, attitudes or operations. Revolution at the Seymour Centre on March 9 will be a night to reach out and change people’s attitudes. Through thought-provoking performances and a visual feast of entertainment, the evening will be a celebration of wonderful talent, while raising much-needed funds for two remarkable organisations, The Factory Community Centre and iEtiquette Inc., a program for Aboriginal women.
It is understandable the installation of an Automatic Syringe Dispensing Machine (ASDM) outside the Redfern Community Health Centre has raised community concerns and questions. The issues around illicit drug use are broad and complex, and have been the focus of tensions for many years around the Needle Bus on The Block. Sydney Local Health District (SLHD) has a responsibility to engage the community and to help facilitate community dialogue and understanding, not just to ensure harm minimisation.
