In November 2020, The Crystal Methamphetamine Project published a report examining the use of crystal methamphetamine among gay, bi, and queer men (both cis and trans) in Canada. With the goal of understanding the need for culturally-safe supports and services, the report shared the experiences of 780 survey participants and made a series of recommendations.
The report has now been made available in Japanese through a collaboration with the Japanese Department of Drug Dependence Research at the National Institute of Mental Health.
“While there are many important differences between men who use crystal methamphetamine in Canada and Japan, there is a need for patient-oriented approaches that increase access to culturally-safe harm reduction and treatment services in all countries,” said Dr. Kiffer Card who led the development of the report.
