The Injecting Drug Issues Network (IDIN)strives to improve the health of people who inject drugs through collaboration and sharing of knowledge to inform public health policy and practice.

IDIN is a joint initiative of CREIDU and Anex. Anex is an independent Australian not-for-profit health organisation dedicated to reducing the harms associated with drug use. IDIN is made up of practitioners, policy makers and researchers from the alcohol and other drug sector.


IDIN meets three times a year with the goals of:

  1. Communicating research findings in the areas of injecting drug use, illicit drugs, Opioid Replacement Therapy and the non-medical use of medicines, including current surveillance data.
  2. Sharing knowledge and expertise on harms, practices, behaviours, emerging trends, treatment service approaches, and other initiatives in the field.
  3. Promoting collaboration between key stakeholders and fostering consistency of approaches to addressing the possible harms related to problematic injecting drug use.
