Action for a healthier community: An effective response to illicit drugs

Illustration of two children with a parent

To deliver a healthy Tasmania, we need evidence-based, effective action on drugs. We are already delivering services to reduce the harm to Tasmanians from drug use. But our current response to the possession and use of illicit drugs criminalises people and causes serious harm. We have the opportunity to disrupt this cycle of harm by increasing equity, fairness and inclusion, and empowering people and communities to shape their health and wellbeing.

This position paper builds on Anglicare’s work to reduce the harms from drug use, enable the development of natural social supports for members of our community who have drug use disorders, and work for a more just approach.
