Trends and characteristics in MDMA deaths in Australia 2000-2018


The seminar will provide information on deaths related to MDMA in Australia during a period when MDMA markets have undergone substantial changes, with increasing manufacture of high purity MDMA.

Among the 392 deaths identified, the individuals’ characteristics and the circumstances of death will be described.

Both deaths attributed to drug toxicity and those which occurred due to other causes in which MDMA was recorded as a contributory factor are considered.
