International Overdose Awareness Day - 31st of August
Aug 12, 2022
International Overdose Awareness day is being held on 31 August. Coordinated by The Pennington Institute, it is the world's largest annual campaign to end overdose; remember those who have died as a result of overdose, and acknowledge the grief of family and friends left behind. With overdose being one of the world's worst public health crises, the awareness raising campaign seeks to stimulate discussion and action about evidence-based overdose prevention.
You can host events in your local community, or you use some of the International Overdose Day campaign materials - posters, social media collateral, t-shirts and more.
