The Drug Deaths Taskforce has recommended six evidence-based strategies that must be central to responding to the drug death crisis as follows:

  • Targeted Distribution of Naloxone
  • Implement Immediate Response Pathway for Non-fatal Overdose
  • Optimise the use of Medication-Assisted Treatment
  • Target the People Most at Risk
  • Optimise Public Health Surveillance
  • Ensure Equivalence of Support for People in the Criminal Justice System

WDADP is committed to following these recommendations with activity that will be implemented through the relevant Sub-Group Delivery Plans.
