New policy timeline to inform the Indigenous AOD sector

Date posted: 29 June 2017

The Australian Indigenous Alcohol and Other Drugs Knowledge Centre (the Knowledge Centre) have added an alcohol and other drugs (AOD) policy timeline to the site. Designed to inform and educate the sector, the policy timeline provides an interactive way to learn about the history of AOD policies in Australia.

Australian Indigenous HealthInfoNet Director, Professor Neil Drew, says 'The policy timeline is a wonderful, creative and innovative addition to our suite of knowledge exchange resources. The simple yet elegant design was chosen to make sure the timeline was easy and intuitive to follow and use.'

The AOD policy timeline provides a snap shot of policy in the sector, and then allows for more detailed information for each listing and access to the report from the Knowledge Centre bibliography.

Alcohol and other drug use is an issue of concern for both Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander and non-Indigenous Australians. The team from the Knowledge Centre hopes this tool will help to inform, support and educate those working in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health in Australia.
