DLAW03 - New Developments in Data Privacy

Willing Anonymous HIV Salivary (WASH) surveillance studies in Scottish prisons changed the focus on drugs in prisons – not always for the better. Barred from work in Scottish prisons, we turned to powerful record-linkage studies to quantify drugs-related deaths soon after prison-release (and how to reduce them); reveal that female injectors' risk of drugs-related death was half that of male injectors; but that the female advantage narrowed with age; and is not evident for methadone-specific deaths. Explanations for these strong, validated empirical findings are the next step.
