In 1998, the Australian Government Department of Health and (AGDHA) commissioned the National Drug and Alcohol Research Centre (NDARC) to implement a national Illicit Drug Reporting System (IDRS) to monitor emerging trends related to the use of heroin, methamphetamine, cocaine and cannabis in the Australian community. The IDRS study provides nationally comparable data with respect to patterns of injecting drug use (IDU) and related harms and informs future policy and research initiatives.
