dc.description.abstractThe fentanyls have emerged as a significant public health threat in North America but much less so in Australia. We sought to identify reasons for this discrepancy and highlight harm reduction approaches that may mitigate a future Australian fentanyl epidemic. Differences in drug use 'culture' and a supply of cheap high-quality methamphetamine in Australia may be reasons for the observed difference in fentanyl-related harm. More worryingly, it is possible that Australia is following North American trends and that the fentanyl epidemic is still to come.-
