Members of the TSU Project Advisory Committee also provided an invaluable contribution to the writing of the final report through comments, editing and authorship for the Forward. A complete list of the Project Advisory Committee members is at Appendix 2.

Production of the report was assisted by funding from the Drug Strategy Branch, Australian Government Department of Health and Ageing. The Drug Strategy Branch provided the principle funding for the TSU Project: Phases One and Two. The AIVL Executive Committee and the Department of Health and Ageing provided comments and final approval for the report.

AIVL wishes to acknowledge the contribution made by the National Centre in HIV Social Research (NCHSR) to the overall success of the TSU Project, and for its contribution to the writing of this report. Despite limited project funding, this work was undertaken by the NCHSR in the interests of furthering collaboration with drug user organisations and promoting new research among drug treatment consumers.

AIVL would also like to acknowledge the support of the state and territory peer-based drug user organisations in promoting and participating in the TSU Project: Phase Two.

Finally, AIVL and the NCHSR would like to acknowledge the five drug treatment services, their staff and clients who participated in the demonstration projects that are the focus of the TSU Project: Phase Two. Without the investment of their time and expertise, this project and report would not have been possible.

This project report and the final project report from the TSU Project: Phase One are both available on the AIVL website.
