A State of Emergency in Victoria is still in place to manage the serious risk to public health posed by coronavirus (COVID-19). For the latest information visit the DHHS Coronavirus webpage.
The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted some VHHSBA projects. Refer to individual project pages for the latest updates.
The Medically Supervised Injecting Room at North Richmond Community Health opened in July 2019.
The facility aims to reduce the high amount of Victorian drug overdose deaths.
A medically supervised injecting room is a place where people can inject drugs of dependence in a supervised health setting. It can also provide a gateway for people who inject drugs to access other health and social support services, including pathways to drug treatment and rehabilitation.
The Medically Supervised Injecting Room project provided more capacity for North Richmond Community Health to provide supervised injecting, counselling and treatment rooms, and more health and social support services.
