Support QuIVAA QuIVAA Seeks to grow our board and committees membership with an eye for lived experience of harms and resilience in the current environment of drug and health policy. We also seek experts in the legal, criminal justice, health systems, and legislative realms of service to advise or join our leadership to further our mission.
We acknowledge the Traditional Owners and First Nations peoples lands of where our offices are located in Meeanjin (Turrbal name for Brisbane CBD). We also acknowledge the First Nations peoples lands of our site visitors. We recognise that these have always been places of continued culture, teaching and learning.

We wish to pay respect to their Elders – past, present and emerging – and acknowledge the important role Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people continue to play within health services and the harm reduction community, by providing services that are culturally appropriate and safe.

As a health service we recognise the harm and destruction colonisation has had on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and aim to be as inclusive and welcoming to all communities from our large and diverse island home.
