Needle Van and Lawson St Health Center

One of the Governments first announcements at the time of the establishment of the RWA was that the Needle exchange on the Block would close and that a New Primary health Care Centre would be set up in Lawson Street. While the anouncement was initially welcomed by REDWatch, the government did not undertake the community education programme required and a significant community backlash saw a group called RED ALERT formed (no relationship to REDWatch) which managed to get the Lawson Street proposal stopped. Here we have some material about this issue.
