Launch of Health Equity in the Response to Drug Overdose webpage and resources
The Division of Overdose Prevention and the National Association of County and City Health Officials (NACCHO) partnered to investigate the literature available on Health Equity in Drug Overdose Response. Through this effort, tools and resources were designed to help health departments consider root causes across populations and interconnected upstream factors when addressing drug overdoses in their jurisdictions.
The newly launched Health Equity in the Response to Drug Overdose Webpage features actionable resources with reports, frameworks, guidance, and resource repositories from local, state, and national entities that have been organized into three core areas based on the proposed action. These are Programs, Practices, and Interventions; Planning and Implementation; and Outreach and Awareness.
