Description

In 2013 a two-year project, ‘EuroHRN II: Supporting Innovative Measures to Address the Reduction of Drug Related Harm in Europe’, funded by the European Commission, was launched by Harm Reduction International (HRI). As one of the implementing partners, Eurasian Harm Reduction Network (EHRN) was responsible for the implementation of ‘Workstream 2’ – the ‘I am the evidence’ campaign – raising awareness of overdose while encouraging pan-European collaboration and information-sharing on overdose prevention.

This report comprises a comparative analysis of legislation, statistics and public health responses to opioid-related overdose in Scotland, Denmark, Italy, Spain, Estonia and Lithuania, as well as recommendations for adoption of good practice policies including collation of documented best practice.
