For the first time in full on YouTube: a compelling documentary for everyone interested in blood borne virus epidemics and harm reduction.

This harm reduction works campaign film was made because there have been a number of major advances in the understanding of blood borne viruses in recent years, and it is vital that everyone in the field -- and injecting drug users -- has up-to-date information about the hepatitis C epidemic, HIV, and injecting drug use.

Aimed at drug workers, peer trainers, policy makers and commissioners, and anyone interested in injecting drug use, this full length documentary features leading experts in the field including Gerry Stimson, Noel Craine, Dr Roy Robertson and Robert Heimer giving their analysis of the current state of our knowledge.

The film covers issues such as hep C treatment, the role of needle exchange and substitute prescribing in prevention of blood borne virus epidemic, as well as describing the HIV epidemic that occured in Edinburgh in the late 1980s.
