NUAA is looking to reinvigorate our Virtual Advisory Committee and we want you!
It doesn’t matter where you live, work or play it is all online or via email. In fact it is designed to get the opinions of people who either live too far away or have other commitments that make attending face to face advisory committees impossible. This group is entirely virtual and confidential.
We are looking for people who use and/or inject drugs, friends and allies who want to have a say in the work NUAA undertakes on behalf the drug using community to get involved. You do not need to have any experience, it is entirely based on your thoughts, experience and opinions.
You may be asked to give your ideas and opinions on a range of topics:
- Health promotions
- Policy direction,
- Share your experiences
- Feedback on project design
The NSW Users and AIDS Association (NUAA) is an independent peer-based drug user organisation that has been the voice of the drug using community in NSW since 1989. Its core areas of activity include peer education, outreach, information provision, project facilitation and advocacy, all underpinned by the philosophy of community development.
NUAA will continue to strive to make significant gains for the betterment of the health, human rights and dignity of people who use or have used illicit drugs, giving due focus upon people who continue to inject drugs.
Underpinning all of NUAA’s work are national and state strategies and plans relating to blood-borne viruses (BBVs) and public health. The activities of NUAA are funded predominantly through NSW Ministry of Health AIDS/Infectious Diseases Branch [AIDB] and the Mental Health and Drug and Alcohol Office [MHDAO].
