CDC Awarding $4,322,929 To New Mexico To Provide Critical Support For Community Efforts To Prevent Drug Overdose

CDC News:

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is awarding funding ($279 million nationally) as part of CDC’s Overdose Data to Action (OD2A) initiative, designed to help New Mexico expand harm reduction strategies (e.g., naloxone and fentanyl test strips), provide people access to life-saving care, and make the latest data available so that the state can get ahead of the constantly evolving drug overdose crisis.   

“The drug overdose crisis in the United States is a constantly evolving, unwieldy, calculating presence that is claiming the lives of our parents, children, siblings, colleagues, and friends,” said Grant Baldwin, PhD, MPH, director Division of Overdose Prevention at CDC’s National Center for Injury Prevention and Control. “CDC is committed to saving lives and to do this we must provide our communities with the resources they need to stay ahead of and respond to this crisis.”
