La Journée Mondiale de sensibilisation à l’overdose vise à accroître la sensibilisation au sujet des overdoses et à réduire la stigmatisation liée à une mort par overdose. Pour en savoir plus, en Anglais, veuillez lire les informations ci-dessous.

As you know, International Overdose Awareness Day (IOAD) is a global event held on 31 August each year. It aims to raise awareness around overdose and reduce the stigma of drug-related death, while also providing the opportunity to lobby politicians about overdose and demand better community responses.

IOAD acknowledges the grief felt by families and friends remembering those who have sustained death or permanent injury as a result of drug overdose and works to spread the message that overdose is preventable. Wear silver to show your support.
