'We'd obviously known for many years that there was significant drug use on the gay scene,' NAT's director of policy and campaigns, Yusef Azad, tells DDN. 'What has changed is the sort of drugs that are used and the context in which they're used.
We'd heard about crystal meth in the US and I recall asking health promoters in the UK about it and being told it wasn't an issue here, but it became an issue and I'd guess about three to four years ago we first started hearing anecdotal reports of slamming [injecting], as it's known.' The overall prevalence of this sort of drug use remains unclear, and one priority is for more research, he stresses. 'What is clear is that there is enough of this sort of drug use going on for it to be very problematic for the health of the individuals concerned. There have been a few deaths, and certainly a real transmission risk around HIV and hepatitis C. Maybe what we can say is that among some gay men who were engaged in risk activity, their risk is becoming even higher risk as a result of these changes in drug use and sexual behaviour.' The letter also cites evidence from Chelsea and Westminster Hospital's Club Drug Clinic and the 56 Dean Street sexual health clinic that reflect Antidote's findings. 'I think it shows there's something of a health crisis, without wishing to be sensational, that we need to act on now - speedily, effectively and urgently,' he says. Does he feel that drug services are geared up to respond? 'No,' he states. 'We held a roundtable in January on HIV and injecting drug use generally, but what was fascinating was how the gay men's issue really shot up the agenda.
