    The Positive Health (pH) project is a cohort study of HIV positive people. The aim of the study is to monitor responses to HIV and treatments over time, particularly in relation to engagement with health care services, health beliefs, preventive behaviour and medication use. The main focus of the study is on positive people’s health management strategies and the impact of HIV on their lives. Participants were recruited through two research centres: one in NSW and one in Victoria. The criterion for entry into the study was being HIV positive. The project is administered collaboratively through the National Centre in HIV Social Research (NCHSR), the National Centre in HIV Epidemiology and Clinical Research (NCHECR), the Australian Research Centre in Sex, Health and Society (ARCSHS), the National Association of People Living with HIV/AIDS (NAPWA) and the Australian Federation of AIDS Organisations (AFAO).

    In 2004, the Beckley Foundation reported on the legal changes that took place in Portugal in 2001 (Allen, Trace & Klein 2004). This report aims to provide an updated overview of the effects of these changes, using data from the evaluations that have been carried out and from new interviews with key stakeholders in Portugal. We reviewed the available evaluative reports (Moreira, Trigueiros & Antunes 2007; Tavares, Graça, Martins & Asensio 2005; Trigo de Roza 2007) and also carried out 11 interviews with key stakeholders in October 2007. These included representatives of the Institute for Drugs and Drug Addiction (the government body in charge of researching and responding to drug addiction and use), non-governmental organisations, political parties and national and international drug researchers1. This report provides information for an international audience on the current trends and the perceptions of key stakeholders regarding the major impacts, successes, and challenges in adopting decriminalization.
