Novel analyses of various national data sources to understand current trends in cocaine and methamphetamine use, markets and harms. Australia has generally recorded high prevalence of cocaine and methamphetamine use relative to many other countries. Significant shifts in these markets in Australia in recent years have impacted use and harms. This seminar will cover recent work from Drug Trends triangulating various data sources to understand emerging trends in use, markets and harms for cocaine and methamphetamine, and highlight potential public health implications.
