Fraser Health Overdose Emergency Report

This report outlines overdose statistics for 2018-19. It also looks at the actions that Fraser Health and its partners are taking to reduce opioid/fentanyl-related overdoses.

Vancouver Coastal Health Response to Opioid Overdose Crisis

The primary goal of this report is to learn from the circumstances surrounding each death, to address the underlying causes and address gaps in our response to date. The evidence presented here indicates that replacing the unregulated, illegal supply of opioids with legal alternatives must rise to the top of our priority list, and requires our urgent attention.
