Description

This guide was developed in response to the growing need among service providers working with drug users in Central and Eastern Europe and Central Asia to introduce overdose prevention work into their services. It summarizes best regional practices as a useful tool for non-governmental organizations working with people who use drugs and wanting to expand their services to introduce overdose prevention. The guide provides a set of concise recommendations on overdose programming based on lessons learned from colleagues in the region as well as additional information on overdose prevention, and an overview of the first pilot results that can serve as guidance in the planning, implementation and monitoring of new projects.
