International Overdose Awareness Day

To mark International Overdose Awareness Day (IOAD) 2024, The HSE National Social Inclusion Office invite you to attend their live webinar on Friday 30th August from 12:00 - 13:00

You can register to attend this event here 

As part of the world’s annual campaign to raise awareness of drug-related overdose, we invite you to join us at our event to help end overdose, remember those who have died without stigma and acknowledge the grief experienced by family and friends left behind. The theme for the 2024 event is, “Together We Can”.

"Together we can" reduce fatal overdoses by services and peers supporting people who use drugs with the development of individual overdose safety and rescue plans.


About the event

Overdose resources

IOAD2024 posters and naloxone resources will be distributed by the HSE National Social Inclusion Office to services nationally, to enable awareness raising at a local level.
