The National Heroin Overdose Strategy, agreed by all jurisdictions through the Ministerial Council on Drug Strategy (MCDS), provides nationally agreed priorities for action aimed at preventing overdose and reducing morbidity and mortality where overdose does occur. Education approaches for opioid users, their family and friends, and the broader community are incorporated within the National Heroin Overdose Strategy.
The National Heroin Overdose Strategy is comprised of three documents:
- the Strategy document (PDF 158 KB);
- a foldout summary for quick reference (PDF 243 KB); and
- a companion document, commissioned by the Australian National Council on Drugs (ANCD).
Copies of the companion document can be obtained from the ANCD website.
