cohealth welcomes today’s announcement that its community health centre in the city is the Victorian Government’s preferred location for a second Medically Supervised Injecting Facility in Victoria.
Nicole Bartholomeusz, cohealth Chief Executive, said that a medically supervised injecting room located at cohealth in the city gives cohealth the opportunity to minimise harm for individuals at risk and potentially save lives.
Being one of Victoria’s largest community health organisations providing a range of health and social support services for many years, cohealth is extremely well placed to deliver this type of service. cohealth is dedicated to supporting the health and wellbeing of the community, with a focus on those who are more vulnerable.
