Overdose in Eastern Europe and Central Asia

The Eurasian Harm Reduction Network, which represents harm reduction groups in Central and Eastern Europe and Central Asia, recently launched a newsletter, and the first issue covers overdose in the region. You can download the English edition here, and the Russian here.

The whole issue is worth reading. It starts off with an article by OPA's own Dan Bigg on overdose as a fundamental, uniting issue in harm reduction. Other pieces present an overview of what we know about overdose in a region that stretches from the Afghan border to the heart of Europe, stories by people who have been saved from overdose by naloxone or used it on others, a story about a great overdose project in Tomsk, Russia, and much more.
