  • Measures that need to be taken in response to the overdose problem in Eastern Europe and Central Asia

    Posted on September 30th, 2011 TimB No comments

    Eastern Europe and Central Asia is home to approximately 3,724,000 people who inject drugs (Mathers et al., 2008).  This region also has one of the world largest populations of people who inject drugs, the majority of whom use opiates (UNODC, 2010).  This predominance of opiates is connected with a high prevalence of HIV and mortality related to injection  drug use.
