People who use drugs and others working in harm reduction have long known that overdose is a major health concern and have been on the vanguard of taking positive steps to deal with it.

A new blog, called the Overdose Prevention Alliance, aims to collect and document major issues in overdose worldwide, to encourage overdose prevention initiatives and promote good practice from a harm reduction perspective, disseminate new research findings, and correct misinformation. The blog includes reports about overdose projects, legal and policy analysis, personal experience, research briefs, tools for running your own programmes, and news on overdose prevention.

You are all invited to contribute with your posts!
