Through our strong and established public health partnerships, collaborative efforts, and shared responsibility, we’re able to develop a comprehensive and coordinated approach, addressing complex public health challenges, efficiently pooling resources, leveraging diverse expertise, and collectively promoting and safeguarding community well-being.
Together We Act
Together We Act is a public health campaign that funds multiple projects and initiatives aimed at taking action on the toxic drug poisoning crisis through innovative solutions, flexible and bold policies, and collaboration across communities, governments, and health care.
In the seven years since this crisis was declared a public health emergency in 2016, more than 13,000 people have died from drug poisoning. By focusing on prevention and long-term, upstream solutions, we can reduce harm, reduce risk, and save lives now.
