Issue Briefs have been written based on several new SIRC research publications. These briefs summarize research information and importantly, how the research can inform policy in the topic area. Issue Briefs include best evidence from prevalence and health consequences research, and also describe promising policy solutions being tested.

At SIRC, we consider community and policymaker audiences critical to our objective of improving the information available to diverse stakeholders.
