The current report summarizes almost two years of experience in implementation of a community based opioid overdose prevention and management project integrated across the 19 CHAMPION-IDU provinces in Thailand. The report intends to provide more detailed information about overdose prevention and management with naloxone to Thai stakeholders and support further expansion of the SCOOP project.
In parallel, the report can be used at the regional level to support advocacy in ASEAN countries to encourage rapid scale-up of this lifesaving intervention. Finally, the report is structured to provide external audiences interested in overdose prevention and management with naloxone a project blueprint to adapt and implement in their own localities. Though specific to Thailand, the report concludes on a set of lessons learned that could guide and support other overdose prevention projects.
