Providing the evidence base to reduce harmful AOD use in
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities
The Alcohol and other drugs (AOD) yarning place is a free online network that enables people across the country working in the area of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander substance use to share information, knowledge and experience - even when they live in different states, territories and regions, come from different sectors (such as health, education and justice), and work for different organisations.
By combining quality, up-to-date web-based information and resources from the Australian Indigenous Alcohol and Other Drugs Knowledge Centre (Knowledge Centre) with the AOD yarning place, we aim to create a great resource for people working or studying in the area of alcohol and other drugs and related Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health issues.
When you join the AOD yarning place, you will have access to electronic services that assist members to stay connected, including:
