This report is the result of the collaborative effort of the Participation and Practice of Rights Project (PPR), UISCE (The Union for Improved Services Communication and Education) and the Mountjoy Street Family Practice (MJFP). There has been considerable expansion and improvements to Irish drug services over the last decade. However, the authors and participants in this report believe there still is room for the voice of drug users to be heard. Anecdotal information led the partners in this project to question whether drug users' experience of and access to health entitlements was equal to those of the general population. In a series of focus group discussions, 25 drug users were about asked about their experiences of health care services.
