Women’s overdose risk and the response to the overdose crisis in Vancouver, Canada

Status: Completed

Project Lead: Jade Boyd

The project aims to generate evidence to strengthen interventions and strategies to decrease overdose-related harms, including death, among women who use drugs through an examination of the social and structural forces shaping overdose risk (such as criminalization, violence), women's access to and experiences with overdose-related interventions, and the perspectives of drug-using women on potential strategies to improving overdose-related interventions and outcomes.
